[Full Interview]

Empowering the black community was extremely important in this school system dispute.

How did you do it?

We didn't do it, the black community did it. But we backed them. They did it partly by school boycotts because California school districts get paid by school day attendance. If your kid isn't in school, the school district doesn't get the bucks from the state. So that became important.
