The Board of Education has received a proposal to consider renaming Falk Elementary School for Milele Chikasa Anana.
"Anana served as the editor and publisher of UMOJA Magazine, which celebrated the accomplishments and joys of African Americans in Madison, for nearly three decades. She was known to many as 'Ms. Milele' or 'Mother Milele,' and is remembered as a 'champion of positive Black news' and a 'fierce lover of Black people' by those who knew her."
