Dear PS 101 Families:
In celebrating Black History Month, it is important that we recognize the adversity and impact of generational trauma, suffered by African-Americans, due to our country’s history of slavery, racism, and inequality. The power of self-care, healing, and building community couldn’t be more meaningful than right now, as students and families continue to suffer racial inequities, while contending with an enduring health pandemic.
