Supt. Brian Davis tells why HPS will not be open January 19

Supt. Brian Davis tells why HPS will not be open January 19

Monday, January 19, is the date of the national holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In this episode, Supt. Brian Davis tells why Holland Public Schools will not open schools and why he hopes everyone will find a way to serve others on this day instead. He also describes the  district's "African American Voices in Our Community" video project. One of those voices, the Reverend Denise Kingdom Grier of Holland, recounts a conversation she had with her mother when she was 12 years old. When Denise told her mother that she saw a photo of West Palm Beach and wanted to go there someday, her mother puzzled her by responding, "Oh, you can't. Jim Crow won't let you." This early incident crystalized Denise's personal commitment to justice and equity and she leaps forward in time to share what the MLK holiday means to her today.
