Conversation: Educational Racism and Our Children

Jul 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$35.00

This 2 hour conversational workshop will focus and address racism experienced by children as students in an academic setting as well as communal one. The conversation will touch upon race, melanated students, cultural competency and cultures in the curriculum. This will be an atmosphere of informational exchanges of ideologies and practices.

If you are expecting a formal and structured training workshop with handouts, powerpoint slides (exceeding 10 slides) lecturing – this is not that type of venue! This is a workshop that uses the unconventional 21st century tool of “Conversation.” Through conversation, guided by Allie , also known as “Allie the Conversation Starter.” Participants will be challenged to be honestly raw on classroom expectations, controversial issues and certain racial issues that either they encountered (or have faced) in the classroom, as well as out of it – as teachers, parents and/or as students. *Parents/Grandparents that bring their children (17 and under) – students will get in for free.

This event, which is a part of the conversation of undoing racism, will appeal to teachers, parents, community leaders and organizations; yet, this discussion is for anyone interested. Limited Seating.
