Host Shango Blake celebrates the life of Rosa Parks in a reflective discussion about the significance of the 100th anniversary with Dr. Bessie W. Blake educator, author and lecturer. Dr. Blake is the former Dean of the College of New Rochelle, School of New Resources was a personal aide to Rosa L. Parks.

Dubbed “The Hip Hop Principal” by parents and students, he has taken the powerful and magnetic force known as Hip Hop and channeled it into a tool that gets young urban students excited about education while at the same time building their self-esteem and confidence. This Project also benefitted the students by creating a project-based model for teaching valuable skills and lessons that extended from the classroom into practical application. The result of this was not only a student-created music video that screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, also students learned to use their passion to focus on education, self-respect, and self-determination, They were honored by Southeast Queens, New York City, and nationally for their hard work and accomplishment.
