The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Anitra Brown. Managing editor for The New Orleans Tribune, Ms. Brown has invested more than ten years of service offering black New Orleanians “news and information from a perspective not heard in the city and mainstream media.” We last spoke with Ms. Brown during the ten year anniversary of the levee failures and Hurricane Katrina. Out of a decade of death and suffering, New Orleans’ public schools have generated a sizable amount of attention and controversy. Ms. Brown and her Tribune colleagues have done a magnificent job covering the changes and deceptions regarding efforts to reform New Orleans’ schools. There’s a new bill pending (SB 432) that will allegedly transfer authority from the Recovery School District to the local Orleans Parish School Board. Ms. Anita Brown submits that this is far from the truth; in fact, the bill represents a tricky means of maintaining the status quo – which conveniently usurps authority from mostly black parents and educators.
