Imani Education Circle Charter School Visit

Pya Kule was given first class treatment at Imani Education Circle Charter School. Co-founder and principal, Dr. Francine Fulton, was very engaging as she explained her vision and shared her concerns for the future of African centered charter schools. This was clearly her passion and life's work, as evidenced by her decision to launch a new school in Gambia, West Africa, to open later this year. The meeting with Dr. Fulton is an attempt to merge PKDG's Afrakaltural Outreach program with Imani's Rites of Passage program. PKDG will also attempt to serve as consultants and help to enhance an already excellent Afrakan centered curriculum. After a very informative business meeting, we discussed ideas further with Dr. Fulton over lunch at the Ausar Auset Society in Germantown. An impressive woman doing impressive work and invaluable service for the Afrakan community. We look forward to future collaborations.
