Readings & Lectures Capitol Hill/Central District

Local educators and activists feel that Black students’ minds and bodies are under attack. That’s why they created Teaching for Black Lives, a handbook for creating the sweeping reform of our education system and equitable teaching strategies for Black students. The editors of this collection join us on Town Hall’s stage to read excerpts and call us to action to dismantle stereotypes and the school-to-prison pipeline. They call for educators everywhere to engage Black students in self-reflection and develop a curriculum that emphasizes community activism and social transformation.
