What are our roles as educators, students, professional staff, and community members to uproot institutional racism at all levels of our education system - from preschool through post-graduate university studies? How do we insure Black Lives Matter on campus year round - not just in February?
In this SpeakOut virtual event, award-winning educator and author Jesse Hagopian focuses on these questions, looking at issues of funding, curriculum, campus policies, and hiring practices as a first step. And, he argues, we also need to challenge anti-Blackness and take an intersectional approach that includes all people — immigrants, women, LGBTQ people - anyone facing oppression. In other words, nothing short of fundamental transformation!
