tomorrow the best bet here is be persistent, patient, and follow your local news and newspapers they're on top of what guidelines are opening up in your specific area >> interesting over the weekend, i had a conversation with my mother, my father, my in-laws, my wife's grandparents we were all talking about how to do this. is this a situation where you can walk in and just get the vaccine? do you have to call and make an appointment? how do you start the process >> unfortunately right now, all the places we're researching are saying, please do not walk in without an appointment because they are already overwhelmed the best place to start is to go online and do a simple internet search your state or your county and the word "covid-19 vaccine." that will at least get you to a website. hopefully a public health website that will help you begin the registration process the other thing you can do if you're a senior or even not a senior and don't want to get on the internet, try 211 or 311 call it straight from your phone.

especially the south will see rain, especially across the southeast. we could see more scattered snow showers through the northeast, too. temperatures really take a dive, especially across the upper midwest, with highs only in the good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. as we take a look at our inland forecast today, it is still going to be very warm. but today we add in some high winds and some of those gusts may be damaging, could possibly cause some power outages for today. along with the high fire danger that continues through tomorrow. after that we're going to cool off the rest of the week, looking like we'll see some more winter like weather with highs in the low 60s. but we could also see a better chance of rain by the end of the weekend into early next week. st >> all right thank you, dylan. craig, coming up, you have an important story on this martin luther king jr. day. >> we are going to introduce folks to two black elementary schoolteachers in oregon
welcome back in honor of martin luther king jr. day, schools across the country are closed this morning, we are recognizing his legacy with a story of progress being made inside the classroom. >> dr. king once said, intelligence plus character, that is the true goal of education. we found two teachers in portland, oregon, who seem to be the embodiment of that message they teach first grade at a school that our affiliate kgo has been profiling since before the pandemic began, actually the station shared their video with us, so we could share the story of these inspirational educators. >> reporter: woodlawn elementary in portland, oregon, may look like any other school, brick building flanked by sports fields, but inside, something
different is happening. you guys refer to yourselves as unicorns why is that? >> i came up with that name for us because i don't think you'l find two black teachers in first grade in the state of oregon. >> reporter: they know they are a rare breed across america. just 2% of public schoolteachers are black men. but at woodlawn, it is 18% why do you both think it is important to have black men in the classroom? >> i firmly believe that, again, sometimes just that connection of having someone that looks like you, gives these kids the chance to come to me and speak to me about maybe things they'll very trouble with. >> for a white kid, it is also important. when a white kid sees a black actors and entertainers. we're people of substance. >> reporter: woodlawn, a traditionally black neighborhood, has been
gentrified in recent years, altering the racial makeup of home room.le of color. many are graduates of the portland teachers program, which offered full tuition waivers and training to minority education students in an effort to put diversity at the head of the class. i understand that you were anthony's mentor. >> yes. >> reporter: now, you work together, both teaching first grade. >> i'm honored to have him as my colleague. >> he was a role model to me, even though i'm five years older than him you know, he's still a role model to me because he gave me the courage to do the things i do >> our existence is our own! >> reporter: in recent months, portland has seen widespread protests following the deaths of george floyd, breonna taylor, and others both of you spent some time earlier this year teaching your
students about what was happening in our country with regards to the protests. why? >> it's what's going on. if life -- and i'm not one to sugar coat anything. it helps our next generation learn how to encounter these situations, as well. if we don't teach them the history of our country, then we're bound to repeat it. >> reporter: how do you go about teaching a first grader about some of what we're seeing play out? >> it really just starts with trying to make it relatable to them one of our key things we typically do in the first grade is talk about rudy bridges, who was one of the first african-american little girls to go to an all white school. ironically, she was in the first grade. >> the beauty about children, especially primary children, they're not born with racist tenets and ideas. >> reporter: green may be 11 years old now and in sixth grade, but she remembers the advice she got from mr. clegg.
>> he always used to say, like don't think about the negative stuff if you're in a negative situation. think about the positive things, which is something i always kept with me. i was like, yeah, let's do that. >> reporter: he was preparing you for life. >> yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. >> reporter: for clegg and lowry, that validates their call. >> greatness is the impact of the service that you leave i'm not in this for, you know, people saying, "mr. clegg is the best teacher." i want to see my children grow up and be successful i want them to want it for themselves and to understand why that's important understand why education is going to be the key to their success in the future. >> wow, what a good story. >> thank you mr. clegg and mr. lowry there, you knew this, my mom was a teacher 35 years, mother-in-law was a teacher. come from a long line of educators. anyone who has ever taught knows it's not a job it's a calling. >> yeah. >> like, it's not a 9:00 to 5:00 job. these two have been called >> so great. >> how rewarding, to then see former students come back and say how much of an impact they had. >> you don't -- yeah, and you don't see a lot of brown male
teachers i was thinking about it. black men, how many in my entire school career, through 12th grade, i think i had one. >> same here >> i remember mr. jones, my math teacher in high school that's it. >> the program in portland that's responsible for this, it's in trouble. budget cuts last year. there is a movement afoot to try to save the program so they can continue to keep diversity at the head of the class there. by the way, if you want to learn more about the remarkable teachers, go to today.com. >> all the best to them. finding success in trying times. blayne alexander introduces us to a small black-owned business in atlanta, helping each other stay afloat.
thriving. >> nbc's blayne alexander joins us from atlanta this morning with more. blayne, good morning. >> reporter: guys, good morning to you i'm actually on atlanta's west side right now we're just off of martin luther king jr. boulevard the home he lived with his family is a couple blocks away from where i'm standing. certainly, no question that the spirit of dr. king here in atlanta, his birthplace, is very strong but in more reasons than one. you know, atlanta is among the top ranked cities for black businesses to thrive now, it's a group that's been hit especially hard by the pandemic, but we caught up with two entrepreneurs who were able to not only survive but thrive by doing things a little bit differently. dr. holman started 2020 much like the rest of us, with a lot of optimism. >> from the socks that we have to the watches, to the leather bags. >> reporter: she was expecting a big year for her business, the village market. >> the marketplace represents over 120 businesses from across
the united states. most importantly, hundreds of shoppers >> reporter: it's held throughout the year. the first scheduled for late march. we know what happened next >> i had a sick feeling in my stomach in making those phone calls. i felt, probably like most entrepreneurs, a most of in despair. >> reporter: a shared struggle for many entrepreneurs, including zach wallace, owner of local green atlanta. his normal buzzing restaurant saw an 80% decline instantly. >> it's >> we're pescetarian, vegetarian and vegan based only we wanted to be an oasis in the food desert. >> reporter: but when covid closed the world, his normally buzzing restaurant saw an 80% decline instantly. >> it's frightening. everything you built, everything you sacrificed and developed within a snap of a finger, it's just, like, threatening to be all wiped away. >> reporter: by almost every metric, covid-19 has been especially devastating to the black community. and black businesses have been hit hard in the first few months of the pandemic, the number of black
business owners decreased by 41%. the highest of any ethnic group. compare that to just 17% decrease among white business owners did you worry that you might become part of that number >> yes, i did. that was a very clear reality, when people around you to the left and to the right are falling to the wayside >> reporter: their best and only chance of survival, a major pivot. for holman, that meant taking the marketplace virtual. her mission was about more than her own survival she offered virtual courses, helping other black businesses stay afloat. >> for so many businesses, they did not have relationships with banks, so there wasn't anyone to call. >> reporter: for wallace, his change also came with the community in mind. >> some people are unable to really leave the house or afraid to leave the house. >> reporter: that meant taking the food to them, with the pandemic as his guide. first, he set up in neighborhoods, offering socially distant pick-ups for stuck at home neighbors then he broadened out. polling locations, fire stations.
>> we allowed people from the community to buy meals for the homeless, so we match them meal for meal, and fed the homeless community during this time. >> reporter: in a year where many restaurants closed for good, local green not only survived and thrived, opening a second location. as for the village market -- >> this particular area is one, two, three, four businesses. >> reporter: right there. >> in this one space. >> reporter: now, a brick and mortar store, housing 29 different black entrepreneurs and helping to raise their profiles in the process. holman's first online marketplace attracted some 26,000 shoppers. >> the past month was the best month they ever had in their business >> reporter: what do you think is the biggest lesson you learned from this pandemic >> resilience. you have to have a resilient mindset. you have to never take no for an answer >> support is a verb it's one of the most unifying calls to action that anyone can respond to the purpose, to me, is community. what i do believe in, that if
you get enough people to believe in something, any business can survive. >> reporter: guys, it's so good to see their businesses doing well, not only for themselves but for so many people around them now, both of them told me another factor was what so many of us remember from last summer, those protests around racial injustice. they said around that time, a lot of people were more conscious about where they were spending their dollars and trying to be intentional about supporting black businesses. both of them say they saw a boost during that time, as well. guys >> hopefully we can do this around the country and support each other thank you. >> so love the mural, by the way. >> gorgeous. >> thank you, blayne. coming up next, soul food with a modern twist. there she is tanya holland is sharing her recipe for a comfortable, veggie-packed sweet potato hash, ladies and gentlemen
