Alice Walker Stands With Oakland Educators

To The Teachers of Oakland (from Alice Walker) — Dear Teachers of Oakland, I am honored to have been asked to speak to you today, or, in the event, to send you a message of solidarity and support. As many of you know, having read my work over the years (hopefully!) Teachers are some of my favorite people.  I have a deep respect for you.  A deep caring that you are treated fairly.  That you are treated well.
