On a day with yet more bad news (yet another school shooting, yet more senseless death), I was happy to just receive an email from Luma Mufleh, founder of the Fugees Family/Academy, the only school in the United States specifically for refugee children-of-war. She announced that in addition to its original Clarkston, GA location (where I just took this photo this week while Traveling at the Speed of Bike* in the most diverse square mile in the USA), they are opening a second school location in Columbus, Ohio. Locations in Cleveland and Indiana may come shortly afterwards, thereby making the Fugees Academy a national network that’s the first of its kind. That is great news.
*There’s a story in my book that you may enjoy about when Fugees students helped me install lights on the bikes of other refugees.
