It’s sweet saturday and it’s an awesome time to just chill out and watch something good on the television. Here’s something interesting you can check out on your "OWN".


Oprah Winfrey Network's that is (smile). A new series called "Blackboard Wars" is premiering TONIGHT, Saturday, February 16 at 8:00 p.m.  (right after "Oprah's Next Chapter" with Beyonce at 7:00 p.m. if you’re like me and passionate about educating our youth education this will move you. It’s about the dramatic transformation of New Orleans’ John McDonogh High School. At it's center is African American principal Dr. Marvin Thompson, a dynamic, experienced educator charged with turning around the school and the students.

Here's a sneak peak

First Look: Blackboard Wars

Blackboard Wars centers on the dramatic transformation of New Orleans' John McDonogh High School. With metal detectors at the door, brutal fights in the hallways and teachers getting pushed around by students, it is one of the most under-performing high schools in the country. More than half of its students fail to graduate. In the new OWN docu-series, cameras go inside the school and follow education maverick Steve Barr and no-nonsense principal Dr. Marvin Thompson as they embark together on an unpredictable mission to reinvent and revive the struggling school.

Take a look and tell me what you think (especially if you watch it, lol, I have not cable)
