Addressing Anti-Blackness on Campus: Implications for Educators and Institutions

Date and Time: June 24th, 2020 at 02:00 PM PST.
Facilitators: Dr. Frank Harris III. Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, Dr. J. Luke Wood and Lasana Hotep

Description:  In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and others, educators are determining options for a thoughtful response. At first, school superintendents and college presidents responded by releasing public statements to their campus communities. But public statements in and of themselves are meaningless without thoughtful action that addresses the pervasive real and symbolic violence against Black communities. In this webinar, the presenters will address tangible strategies for addressing anti-Blackness in schools, colleges, and universities. All educators and institutions looking for concrete strategies and next steps should attend.
