While on business in DC attending the last Race to the Top Summit, we had a surprise guest, U. S. Secretary of Education, Ms. Betsy DeVos, who I captured on film with leaders from the New Haven Unified School District. I also had an opportunity to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture. I took in an hour of our country\’s historical accounts of the African and African American experience and marveled at the strength, perseverance and courage of my ancestors.
