“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
-El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz
My parents considered two primary things as non-negotiable actions as my brother and I became young adults: 1. Having excellent credit, and 2. Going to college. My late father, a minister, often spoke of his ten-mile trek to a small shed which served a schoolhouse for Black children in rural Georgia. His early education was sporadic because he had to work in the cotton fields to help support his family. My mother, who wanted to become a writer, was told that there were no such opportunities available for a Black woman. She opted to become a teacher for exceptional students. Despite these barriers, my parents worked tirelessly to ensure that their children and grandchildren had a different outcome. It is upon their legacy of perseverance and fortitude that IADW was created, and our mission is to help you earn your own passport to the future.
