Public Education and Race: The African American Experience

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our series “Public Education and Race: The African American Experience.” The series began with Dr. Jarvis Givens on September 30, speaking on “Fugitive Pedagogy: Carter G. Woodson and the Art of Black Teaching.” Dr. Givens was followed by Dr. Theresa Perry on Saturday, October 16, on “Looking Back to Look Forward: Towards the Theory and Practice of Achievement for African American Students.” And the last lecture in the series was on October 26, with Dr. Colin Rose, creator of the Culturally Responsive Practices Leadership Academy for the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
