Dr. Roma Benjamin - Former Prinicipal - 6:15pm
Dr. Roma Benjamin, a former Principal of Rowland School in Harrisburg PA and youth literacy advocate who said enough is enough!
Quitting her job to start fresh and really teach children she has opened an academy to better educate children for the future at hand. She states everything negative that is ailing our black communities stems from the inability of children knowing how to read at grade level or at all quite frankly in many areas making them functional illiterates. She is talking to and assisting other churches like hers to open reading centers in their communities to start helping our children because she believes we don't need permission to educate our children better than others are doing thus far. Her experience as both an educator and community leader has really opened her eyes to the injustice our children continue to endure.
