LOYAL DAILY DAWG READERS: PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ZOOMING WITH THE DAWG CALL WILL BE THIS THURSDAY, JUNE 23 AT 10:00. I’LL BE JOINED BY LEANDRA ORTIZ FROM OUR RIO GRANDE VALLEY OFFICE. LEANDRA AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE AS WE DISCUSS PARENT RIGHTS.
We’re celebrating Juneteenth today and the Walsh Gallegos law firm is closed. But I do have one recommendation for you. A Texas native published a book containing a series of short essays about her experiences growing up in East Texas, and specifically about being the first African-American student in the Conroe ISD. This would be an excellent book study for a school faculty group, or as an assignment to students. The book, On Juneteenth, is an easy read that will touch your heart and provoke some serious thinking. It’s an honest look at our recent history. The author, Dr. Annette Gordon-Reed, is now a professor at Harvard. I hope you’ll take a look at it.
DAWG BONE: “ON JUNETEENTH”: WORTH YOUR ATTENTION.
Tomorrow: Toolbox Tuesday!!
