Kansas City Public Schools and W.E.B. DuBois Learning Center have completed the sale of the former Milton Moore Elementary School at 4510 E. Linwood Blvd.

DuBois Learning Center has been leasing the building from the district since 2013 for its free tutorial service programs. The lease agreement gave DuBois an option to purchase the site.

Sis. IFE, didn't see this thread until now. Glad I found it because I was thinking about Saturday schools and wondering if this was still a way in which Black people could increase their knowledge in ways that it benefits our youth, short- and long-term. Thank you for starting this thread.

We now live in the information-age and not agricultural or industrial ages so what are our youth doing on Saturdays? They are not farming or going to factories to work, so how are they spending the day and using their brains? Are they involved in after-school programs that don't involve sports? Are Black parents who care about the education of their students opposed to their children spending more time "in school"?

About the BUF: "The United Black Front (also known as the Black United Front) was created in the late 1960s as a coalition of 50 black power organizations seeking to address four major objectives: the elimination of white oppression, increased economic and political power for blacks, better education and social status for blacks, and the elimination of racial discrimination. David Mills, the director of the Seattle Central Area Registration program, was elected president in September 1968. The UBF set up 13 committees to address issues such as political action, youth, labor, housing, education, and others."

DC's BUF seems to be thriving:

This is giving me ideas on how to spend my time after retirement. Is there a BUF in your city?

No, there is not a BUF in metro Atlanta.
You would think there would be.

There isn't one where I live either, which really doesn't surprise me because where I live is predominately white. You're right, I'm surprised that there isn't one in Atlanta, though. When I retire, I don't want to work another 40 hours a week, I want some "play" time, but I also don't want to just sit at home. I want to do something constructive with my time in a secular way.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
