Hear From Our Alumni

"The closing of Northeast hit me hard. As we, the alumni, continue our efforts at preserving the legacy of our school, I'm also aware that the closure of Northeast High School has generationally altered my community. A predominantly Black school for many yours until its closing, it's important to highlight that Northeast played a significant role in shaping our perspectives on race and race relations throughout its history, from integration to its eventual renaming. Given the ongoing legislative challenges in education, placemaking and historical preservation efforts are necessary. This is why I am genuinely excited about joining the OKC Black Alumni Coalition network."
