You Don't Say: 'My entire purpose in education was to create spaces where all students felt welcome.'

Dr. Eryca Neville is very familiar with the education system in Missouri. She’s the principal at Frederick Douglass High School, where she helps shape the lives of dozens of teenagers year in and year out.

For this edition of You Don’t Say, Dr. Neville and KBIA’s Regan Mertz sat down with Tyus Monroe, a senior at Columbia College pursuing a degree in education, to talk about their experiences with education in Missouri and how history plays an important role in the present.

You Don’t Say is a special project commissioned by the City of Columbia’s bicentennial Como200 task force. It’s co-produced by the Sharp End Heritage Committee and KBIA.
