WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Explore Equity & Social Justice Education
Using world renowned educational leader and best-selling author, Baruti Kafele's, book, The Equity & Social Justice Education to guide our presenters and discussions. We will explore some of Principle Kafele's self-reflective questions to ponder on our own knowledge base of Black existence in America and it's significance in lifting that up in our educational system that will impact our students.
"Any and all aspects of social and racial justice have historical implications. In order to fully understand contemporary social and racial justice issues...you have to understand what got us to this point. You have to understand history relative to Black-white relations. As an educator of Black children, what do you know about the history of Black people in America? How familiar are you with the past four centuries of Black existence in America?"
