6:37 am
handle these kinds of opportunity, therefore, don't put the effort into supporting these girls in taking advantage every these opportunities. that is in effect racial discrimination. >> no surprise, school district obviously disagrees, put out a statementment one of the core values as a district is increasing opportunity in the classroom and on the playing field for all of our student regardless every race or gender. we work every day to ensure equity across the district in that every child is given the opportunity to succeed. and last year, it point out, they had more than 250 female student athletes participating in 20 of our school teams and field hockey and girls lacrosse, and bee continue to promote all sports within the philadelphia public league. so, this one will be decided in the courts it looks like, don't be surprised if nadira gets joined by a lot of other girls who feel the same way. alex, mike? >> interesting, she will be in our studio in just a little bit, thanks, steve.

>> if this city continues -- as philadelphia continues to debate whether we should move the frank rizzo statue or not, the city culture arts program installed a new piece of art right next to the statue. >> i have to clarify, from what i've been reading this was not in direct response to the discussions about the frank rizzo statue that happened about a month ago, after charlottesville, when there were some rallies, protests in that city surrounding monument, this, i hear, was already in the works. it was dream up about a year ago. so, the hope is to explore the question, what is an appropriate monument for the city of philadelphia? welshing the artist here, used a pick to depict his feelings and answers to that question. the artist says the pick exists today as many things to many people, for some, it is a political emblem, and for other, it is a signature of collective identity. some still wear it now, as an
6:39 am
adornment like phillies own quest, see him in some pictures all the time, if you don't know who he is, he is one half of grammy award running group the roots, right out of philadelphia. and an instagram post, the artist write it is an honor to have my work all power to all people 2017 in the city where my parent met. he goes onto encourage his followers to get to philly before november when this exhibit ends. but it won't end before it stirs up a lot of controversy, and maybe some conversations. that is the point of it all. the artist says his design is intend today highlight ideas related to communities, strength, perseverance un, resistance to oppression, exhibit protected by some barriers on all sides, maybe to avoid the same vandalism the rizzo statue saw when emotions flared up here about a month ago, and since that happened, philadelphia police officer had been keeping 24 hour guard of the monument, this morning, we've not seen one yet, but is it important to note, mike and alex, you know those calls of the community, to decide whether
6:40 am
the statue stays or goes, they asked people to send in entries and explain what they want to happen. that ends on friday, and then the arts commission will decide in about a month, yes, what happens with the future of frank rizzo. >> then the pick will end up in florida, permanent location. >> so just visiting for right now. >> so the paper today an article about it, cultural arts program, did decide to put it down by the rizzo statue on purpose. >> yes. so laura is talking about the fact the artist didn't have frank rizzo in mind. >> no. >> because it has been in the works for awhile, but the mural arts founder said she hopes all power to all people the name of the statue provides a counter balance to the rizzo statue and will hopefully open a dialogue between them. so were you right, mike, sound like -- >> she could have put anywhere. >> it was intentional. >> to create conversation, which is happening. >> it certainly is. so, let's see some of the comment you guys have been
