November 2015 Wave Project Archives

with Tommy Ellis - a selection of House music from the 80s and 90s. 

Today's Wave Project about Minority Parent Involvement in Education was inspired by Sharaud Moore's 2014 visit to Pillsbury United Communities Oak Park in north Minneapolis. Moore was a student in the classroom depicted in the 1992 film Freedom Writers and went on to become a teacher. He says about himself that he had all the ingredients for failure, but wound up on the path to success thanks to an inspiring teacher and support from his mother and grandmother.
