The Historical Opportunity for Courageous Leadership Lunch and Learn Series: 1956
2020 is a turning point year. There are extraordinary opportunities for transformation. For healing. For courageous leadership. To better understand these opportunities, TIP will take a look at three times in North Carolina history where we had the opportunity for transformation in education and race equity.

Two years after Brown v. Board of Education, North Carolina is at a crossroads: will it move towards equity and integration or defy the Supreme Court? What will be the role of courageous leaders?

Sponsored by The Innovation Project and The Center for Love & Justice at the High Tech High Graduate School of Education (HTH GSE)

Oct 9, 2020 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
