Imagine all the people giving.....
The Leona Tate Foundation for Change has begun construction in partnership with Alembic Community Developers to transform the historic landmark McDonogh No. 19 Elementary School Building into the TEP Interpretive Center for Civil & Human Rights. This building will forever be a beacon of hope, cultural & historic preservation and economic impact in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana.
On November 1960, four courageous 6 year old girls change America to create a unified public school system for educational equity in Deepa South. What they did by integrating those two Elementary Schools sparked integration on all levels of society. They led the peaceful protest to defy the Jim Crow laws that enforced segregation.
As you plan your future and set your philanthropic goals, join us as we continue to provide uniquely American programming and events at the TEP Interpretive Center for Civil & Human RIghts. Your future gift wil nurture all possibilities of our efforts.
