Wow! I am amongst family! My Mother was a Teacher, My Aunt, My Grandmother taught high school English, My Grandfather taught English and History and was the first Black Headmaster in a white school in Concordia Parish. Amazing!

I’ve heard people say that before. A middle school principal told me one time “We don’t need your program we need you to teach parenting classes”
@Brad - terrific I’ll reach out and do a virtual intro..
Thanks for joining, @Anna!
Thanks @ Joyce!
I wanted to say ….
that meeting kids where they currently stand in the academic environment is crucial to improving the education of each child. Personalized learning is key to improving the gap across POC & Black learners.
Please post any questions you have in the Q&A panel :-)

Dr. Trina Coleman
unfortunately that is a pattern in America
Such a great ad important point.
Agreed! Personalized solutions are important.
Agreed. I think this also contributes to the over-representation of Black and Brown students in special education.
yes so true! I am a grassroots bootstrapping organization.. networking helps!
(And by "this" I mean standardized tests that are generalized.)
Doric is 100% correct, all black start-up founder will face fail if they can not bootstrap and network. I think if that is one piece of advice I can give to younger start up is that you will have to create your own funding. You will need to learn how to survive with a low operating income and you MUST turn 15 cents into 2 dollars.
Companies need to redefine technology reach.. networking and Mapping needs to be stronger in underserved communities.

There is a need for all curriculum content to be reviewed to seek out and identify racist bias in what we teach students. As a ‘for instance’…think back to what we were taught about ‘slave trade’ in history class. If you were like me you learned a sanitized white person’s version… and it included mention of a ‘slave trade triangle’ where part of this ‘triangle of trade’ was picking up slaves in Africa. But that is not what happened. They picked up people in Africa, kidnapped them, stole them from their family, beat them and raped them, and created slaves along the route. Much much different. If you google it right now, you’ll still find the ‘sanitized’ version. This is just one tiny example… so content needs to be scrubbed…
These companies should look at offline solutions.
Look forward to future conversation. Have to attend another call. Charnella Derry firstname.lastname@example.org
Right on… history books need to be re-written… !!
Write the truth!

Hi Laura! Yes, you will have access to the recording.
Yes re: home schoolere
Integrate our "history" and contributions in all subjects: engineering, math, business
Writing them accurately!
Black History is American History!!!
Well said, Alvin! Moving our kids AND teachers forward and providing the right support.
It sure is. Every class at Savannah state had an element of Black History embedded in it. I remember my Communications Law was all about Brown Vs. Board of Ed.
Yes!!! Re: financial literacy
Yes @Dawn - it is OUR history - American history.. white, black, brown all…
we also need to address how schooling children with disabilities aka different abilities to learn
The Civics course that taught about credit and banking was an "honors" class in my school & I was the only Black kid
i like that perspective of network vs hierarchy
I was having this conversation with my wife earlier today. How would we do school if we could never go back to the classroom? How would we make it effective? We do need to innovate.
Yes neurodiversity and addressing the narrative around Black/ Brown kids who are neurodiversity
If we keep it separate, Black history vs American history, then it sort of makes it only applicable to black and brown people. And what we need to do is educate the next generation of white people that it is OUR history…and that our White ancestors did horrific things and enslaved human beings and kept them down…and that this racism persisted for generations, until we all woke up and decided that enough was enough. Wouldn’t that be a nice thought, that children in schools now could look back and say “wow, that was awful, racism is awful, we don’t want that to happen ever again.”
I completely agree @Joyce.
right on @Joyce! That's the word right there! We built it... Full stop!
I agree @ Joyce
I agree, Joyce. This is critical to move us all forward.
