How can we help all teachers unlock the gifts, talents, and prior knowledge of Black students? How can we make sure all students learn about American greats like civil rights organizer Ella Baker and inventor George Washington Carver in history class? How can Black parents protect the Black genius of their kids – and transform the U.S. education system in the process?
Join us Wednesday, March 3, when we hear from Ashoka Fellow Will Jackson, founder of Village of Wisdom (VOW), and his colleagues Taylor Webber-Fields, Associate Director of Parent Leadership and Amber Majors, Director of Research. Building on its work with parents and teachers in Durham, North Carolina, VOW is now launching a clearinghouse for effective, culturally-affirming instructional strategies for Black children learning in various contexts.
Bring your friends, family, colleagues, and your questions! This conversation is expected to run about 30 minutes and is part of Welcome Change, our weekly conversation series with social entrepreneurs on timely topics. Join us every Wednesday, explore here: https://ashoka-usa.org/explore/
