The success of Roots is demonstrated in several
ways. In 1999, the community asked Dr. Thompson to open another Roots as a charter school. Therefore, Roots Public Charter School was born as a protégé of the Roots Activity Learning Center. RALC alumni have successfully graduated from many of the finest area high schools, historically black colleges and universities, as well as from Harvard, Duke, Princeton, etc. RALC teachers and staff have received National teacher and principal of the year honors, and former students have achieved high on standardized tests and placed well in Spelling Bees and other academic competitions.

This month we celebrate the birthday of Kwame Nkrumah. Though the actual date of his birth is not known, we commemorate his birth on September 21, 1909. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was the first Prime Minister of Ghana, which was the first African country to win independence from colonial rule.
We also honor our present day role model Ruby Bridges- Hall, born September 8, 1951 in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1960, at six years old she was one of the first black children to attend an all white public elementary school in the the South. Escorted by Federal Marshals, she was the only child in her class. Presently, Ruby Bridges Hall resides in New Orleans. In her effort “to increase Parental Involvement in Education” she founded “The Ruby Bridges Foundation”.
