Dr. Umar Johnson recently sat down with VladTV and offered up his thoughts on education and the African American community, as well as his plans to open up his own school.
When asked about why he thinks that education isn’t celebrated in hip-hop, Dr. Umar Johnson told DJ Vlad that an emphasis isn’t put on education in the African American communities in general, especially for boys. He added that he started caring about black history after taking a mandatory class in elementary school, and later learning that he was related to Frederick Douglass during his first family reunion.
During the sit-down, Dr. Johnson revealed that he’s planning to name his residential academy after his famous ancestor, Douglass, and Marcus Garvey. While he doesn’t have the exact location acquired yet, Dr. Johnson said that he knows the student body will be 100% compromised of black students. However, he added that he couldn’t advertise the school as being exclusively for black children, although there are schools for LGBT children.
