BAEO and Dr. Sapp push more options for education

    The Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO) is partnering with award winning gospel artist Dr. Marvin L. Sapp for a community dialogue on educational opportunities for Black families in Tennessee.

    The free event featuring the Grammy nominated Sapp – a Grand Rapids, Mich. pastor and Dove, Stellar and BET award winner – will be Friday (Feb. 1) at Greater Community Temple at 5151 Winchester Rd. It begins at 7 p.m., with the doors open at 6 p.m.

    The session will include a discussion about the status of education for African-American students and the options that are available for parents seeking better educational opportunities for their children.

    Dr. Sapp will accent the evening with a special concert.

    The event is part of BAEO's "Give Parents a Choice, Give Children a Chance" campaign, which is aimed at mobilizing and educating members of the community about the value of parental choice in helping to increase achievement for African-American students.

    Attendees will receive information about educational options available as well as learn how they can play a more active role in supporting parental choice and educational options in their community.

    BAEO is a national, non-profit, membership organization. Its mission is to increase access to high-quality educational options for African-American children by actively supporting parental choice policies and programs that empower low-income and working-class African-American families.
