“Changing hearts is the number one thing.”

David Robinson spent some time with Julia Chatterly of CNN and spoke of his involvement in education. He stated that “education is the key” to making progress in racial relations in the United States.

Robinson has been involved with the addition of nearly a hundred schools in the South, particularly in low-income areas. According to Robinson, 100% of the students are attending college over the last decade.

“My children believe they can go & be the next President of the United States, a lot has changed in 2 generations.”

An interview well worth a view. That said, we all know what David has meant to the organization, to the city, and to education. His words, efforts, and effect are nothing new, but it’s good to get a reminder every now and again.
