2016 SOURCE PRE-CONFERENCE EVENT: “A Perfect Storm: The Takeover of New Orleans Public Schools” reveals the real story behind the creation of the nation’s first all-charter school district. The film, directed by Phoebe Ferguson and Dr. Raynard Sanders, features interviews with leaders in the New Orleans education community who were faced with the daunting task of reopening schools immediately following Hurricane Katrina. The film screening will be followed by a conversation with the film maker. This event is free of charge, so, please join us on October 18, 2016, at 6:00 PM in the Urban Life Building Room 220 on the campus of Georgia State University and engage in meaningful community dialogue.

at the Rick McDevitt Youth Center in Peoplestown. This will be a big one. We invite you, yo’ cousin and ya mama too to come out as we strategically align the progressive and revolutionary movement’s efforts. We will be diving into the closure of the Peachtree
