Ray Mays Jr.
“When I first decided to return home to teach I was overwhelmed with emotions. I was eager, nervous, and excited all at the same time. The Mississippi Delta, a rural region that has been faced with, among other things, prodigious amounts of poverty, racism, classism, social segregation, and educational inequity. Returning home to teach was about more than teaching my students content. Teaching for me was more about allowing students to see the uniqueness in their identities and instilling in them a keen awareness about the world. It is my desire to empower my students and help them develop holistically.
Returning home was a huge step for me, largely in part because the culture in Mississippi is deeply rooted in religious teachings. These deeply rooted teachings are very much a part of me and embarking on the role of mentor, educator, and role model, I have had to reconcile those identities, again. Personally, as a same gender loving black man living in the South, I know firsthand the struggles of racism, homophobia, and discrimination. I know the gender biases and the racial and homophobic stereotypes that have been deemed upon me and countless others. Professionally, I feel the effects of he biases and stereotypes even more acutely. Thankfully, much of this does not come from my students.
I live in a state where I can be fired, simply because of my identity. I live in a country where black bodies are not accepted or respected and in an area of the country that clings tightly to an antiquated past and backwards teachings. Confronting these circumstances has led me to my advocacy work as a classroom teacher.
Reflecting on my identities and intersections and the importance they play within my classroom, I have the unique opportunity to expose my students to the systemic and systematic injustices they will be forced to face daily. Even as an elementary school teacher, my students are able to have thought provoking conversations around issues such as race, class, gender, sexuality, and education inequity.
Throughout the year we pay tribute and celebrate those sung and unsung civil rights giants and trailblazers who have worked tirelessly for a better America. We pay tribute to those who challenged the institutions of injustices including Fannie Lou Hamer, James Meredith, Bayard Rustin, Barbara Jordan, Emmett Till and James Baldwin.
Each day, when I look into the faces of my students, I am constantly reminded of how far we have come as a society and yet, how much work still needs to be done. We, collectively, stand on the shoulders of giants who have had the fortitude, unyielding faith, and dedication to withstand anything. Yet, as I often remind my students, although we know the troubling past and may even live in a troubling present, it is our charge to be our best selves and fight for an inclusive and more just future because we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

This is #JonathanFerrell. Last summer, he crashed his car in Charlotte. He climbed out of his car and started walking in search of help. Police arrived, surrounded the site of the crash and Ofc. Randall Kerrick shot Jonathan multiple times in the chest, killing him. #endpolicebrutality

WHAT?
