Our children are born with unsurpassable worth granted to them by a mighty God.

We must fight for them, everyday.


I write and talk about education


Hello from Minnesota.

I'm Citizen Stewart, an evangelical, husband, father, writer, speaker, essayist and education activist.

I amplify ideas that increase educational opportunity for black people, families, and communities.

I do this by challenging the dominant discourse about black people, our students, and our schools.

I am a voice of the never ended battle between my ancestors and their oppressors.

I am their enduring demand for FREEDOM.



Say Hey


I am always up for discussion and hearing new ideas!
