This MLK Day, members of the Haverford-Ardmore community and students at the college attended a CPGC - conversation with two former students from the York Central school district who were instrumental in challenging a book-ban there, plus three local Philadelphia educators/authors. The event also marked the inaugural CPGC Award for Creative Maladjustment and Youth-led Social Change.
