Storyteller:

James Ford:

“I am James Ford, Restorative Practice Coordinator at Lewiston High School. I am an African American male who has lived in Maine for 39 years and I have dealt with many layers of Affirmative Action, discrimination, racism, segregation and implicit bias. I have been doing work on race, or the subject of race all of my life.  I love the Lewiston High School; its diversity and its willingness to shift behaviors to work with the current student population. I see my role as helping to facilitate that shift…finding ways to bring the school closer to the community. Let’s open our doors to our parents, businesses and our neighbors.” – James
