First on Fifth has been one of a broad coalition of community partners with Equity Forsyth – churches, faith communities, WSFCS school system, colleges and universities, and education-based nonprofits – who are gathering to host Dr. Bettina Love for a lecture on Tuesday night, April 16, at 7:00pm at Union Baptist Church. Dr. Love’s new book, Punished for Dreaming:  The Case for Abolitionist Teaching and Educational Reparations, and her work supporting parents and teachers impacted by the injustice of educational reforms toward Black children will form the basis for the lecture.
