I chose Black ‘n Bougie because I love all of her blogs. That is unusual because most people write at least a few crazy posts that you can do without but I guess being Black and Bougie myself helps me to identify with Michele.
This particular post highlights something extremely positive in our community which you would think should have garnered more media attention. It highlights an urban prep school in one of Chicago’s roughest neighborhoods, not for something criminal, but because all 107 students (yes 100%) of them have been accepted into college. This feat is commendable for any institution but more so because upon entering their freshman year only 4% read on grade level.
