Operation Understanding

TMA Seniors John Tucker( pictured above) and Ke'Von Miles are currently on a three week tour of the South with a group of African-American and Jewish students through the program Operation Understanding. Operation Understanding's mission is, "to build a generation of community leaders who will work to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism, and all other forms of discrimination  and to promote respect, understanding, and cooperation within their communities." On their trip John and Ke'Von will be visiting various sites that were integral to the civil rights struggle as well as those important to the Jewish community.

Read more about John and Ke'Von's trip in the Washington Afro.

Ke'Von is also featured in a news story about the trip which can be found here.

We are extremely proud to have students like John and Ke'Von who are committed to becoming leaders in the struggle to dismantle racism and discrimination.
