Our children are wonderful and have the potential to change the world.  It is my goal by way of the Harriet Tubman School for Leadership and Enterprise to provide them with an environment that allows them the freedom and guidance to be all they can be.  My idea on how to do this took years to develop.  Only to then realize that it is the ideas of our children that we should be most concerned with.”
