Last Night at Preemptive Education Conference

Last night at the Cowin Center at Teachers College, Columbia University, the 2012 Preemptive Education Conference kicked off in inspirational style. While there were a number of performers, specifically, three urban word scholars performed their poetry and professors responded with their remarks following the performance. Danni, a scholar with Urban Word NYC, was the final scholar to perform and she blew us all a way, as IUME Director Ernest Morrell responded to her poem by explaining why youth like Danni are the answers–and a path forward marked by hope and love.
