There is so much Black History to celebrate here in Oakland. Of course, we can always point to the Black Panthers and all they did for our society, or to Ida Louise Jackson who was Oakland’s first Black teacher and the first Black woman to teach high school in California, or to Vice President Kamala Harris who was born at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. But this Black History Month, I want to celebrate people who are here in our district right now or products of OUSD. Let’s start with our amazing staff.
