The inspiration for "Stop Playing"


For those who couldn't attend Friday Seminar, and for those who did, speaker George Shannon shares now his inspiration for his talk "Stop Playing" in this video. The message comes through loud and clear as he takes a group of students on a tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. It is short, but compelling, please watch. 

The back story.

"While I was working in the White Bear Lake district. I was given a $30k budget to take students on a tour of Hisorically Black Colleges and Universities. (It was there we encountered Dr. Freeman.) We travelled by bus to Houston, Texas and visited three different schools, along with museums and other historical sites."
