Ms Rocki and Chaveevah are ALWAYS on the lookout for good things happening on the North End
When it comes to difficult conversations about race in America, sometimes we have to "Give It Air"--because EXPOSURE is often the best 'disinfectant'. And it's not just the 'hot-button' issues--we also need to shed light on things that we need to know more about.
As we talk about what makes our community, nation and world awesome, we also need to educate and to address things that need to change.
