Black & Latino Marching Band Leads Oklahoma Teachers on Last Leg of 110 Mile March

Over at the Guardian, Payday Senior Labor Reporter Mike Elk filed a dispatch from Oklahoma City on the end of historic 110 mile March for Education:

“I think it comes at a great time with the #MeToo movement and everything with women being able to finally take a stand and say: no more of this kind of treatment,” said Broeffle Musgrove.

Steven House, a sunglasses-clad local barbershop owner in his late 40s with a large scar on his right cheek, hopped out of his BMW holding peace signs in the air.

“I love it, dude. I’ve been incarcerated, and we people who have been incarcerated, we need education,” said House, who served nine years in the 1990s before going back to school to get his BA in psychology. “I’m down with this, man. We should have been doing this!”
