I teach to link the personal experiences o
f my students to the work that we’re studying, and to the world.
Devious Secret Plan
I want to use my plays to build a social justice organization that supports life-changing educational experiences for young people. Specifically:
- Create and sustain excellent urban public schools in New Haven.
- Link young people to organizations like the New Haven / Leon Sister City Project that will enable them to study and work abroad, get a broader perspective on the world, and connect with people different from them.
- Create a hip-hop based True Gang Truce movement actively working to create peace on our city streets and in our national policy – linking the deaths of our young people here with the deaths of our young people in Iraq.
- Connect young people with youth- and hip-hop-based voter education, mobilization, and registration organizations.
- Create a sustainable investment program that will enable young adults who have extra money to support the above efforts.
