The Southside Elementary School principal was on Jennifer Hudson’s show yesterday

Southside principal Christian Mahone was interviewed on Jennifer Hudson’s daytime show about his work, the significance of being a Black educator, and creating a basketball program for his students. Hudson’s show is based in Chicago, and like Hudson, Mahone grew up on the South Side. 

He also got to play pop-a-shot with Hudson, after which he was surprised with Bulls tickets for the entire school. You can watch the segment below:
