Community Talks


Our event was a success!

With the start of the 2019-20 school year, our first BOOK event was a great success! Thank you to those that were able to attend and it was a great evening featuring parents, community leaders, and other education stakeholders. The event featured a Meet-and-Greet with the new, dynamic school leader of Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (ANCS), Chuck Meadows. It also featured a legislative update from Rashaun Holliman with GCSA, and additional remarks on the upcoming legislative session from the Foundation for Excellence in Education’s, Ryan Mahoney. The event ended with a panel conversation featuring Chuck Meadows (ANCS School Leader), Gail Johnson (Executive Director of the Warren Boys & Girls Club), Timmy Foster (Principal of Parkside Elementary), and Rev. Bettye Holland-Williams (President of the Metro Atlanta Concerned Black Clergy), moderated by the Chair of the Men of BOOK, Greg Clay. Thank you to the Georgia Charter School Association for co-sponsoring this event! To receive updates about our upcoming events you can sign up for our email list by taking our brief survey, here.
