With our schools under attack, the Disney Imagination Campus gave school teachers some relief. Furthermore, the happiest place on earth recognized four inspiring Black instructors from across the country as guests of honor for a fantastic celebration of America’s education heroes at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida as part of its 50th anniversary, according to a Disney press release sent to BLACK ENTERPRISE.
