I want my students to stand up for people who can’t stand up for themselves,” said Gail Meadows, principal of the Meadows Livingstone School.

For the last 30 years, Meadows and the school that bears her name and that of her husband, Bob Livingstone, have been situated where Potrero Street meets Cesar Chavez. There, she and her teachers and their largely bi-racial and black student body, grades one through six, navigate the persistent development surrounding General Hospital and tent encampments to reach their little schoolhouse on the sprawling property known as The Farm.

“We’re dedicated to directing children to be critical thinkers, to carry the torch for Black Power, and are unashamedly African American,” said Meadows.
