Magnolia Tree Earth Center of Bedford-Stuyvesant teamed up with Dreams Turn Reality and Sankofa Community Empowerment for Magnolia’s annual Back to School Drive, where bookbags and supplies are distributed to students up to high school.

Parents and students filled the main room at the Lafayette Avenue home of Magnolia, as Brother Quebutter, delivered an uplifting and motivational talk to the young people; telling of the greatness within them and how, through the greatness of each of them, they build the community. It was a talk that had them sitting up and speaking their names loud and proud.
