Pan-African Flag
The Pan-African flag, (also called the Marcus Garvey, UNIA, Afro-American or Black Liberation flag,) was designed to represent people of the African Diaspora, and, as one scholar put it, to symbolize "black freedom, simple."

It takes a village. Black Students in Minneapolis Public Schools rely on the (parental) village as advocates, mentors, and mediators!

Please join us in building a strong foundation for the success of Black Students.

Black Parent Advisory Council

  • A friendly space to learn about district issues, share concerns, and identify solutions (also known as information sharing);
  • Use your voice to shape and influence district policies and programs;
  • Address needs and opportunities as a community; and 
  • Be a part of the District Parent Advisory Council hosted monthly by parents of Minneapolis Public School students. 

Meetings: Every month starting in September (no meetings in December, July, and August).
