We Gon’ Be Alright, But That Ain’t Alright:

Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom featuring Dr. Bettina L. Love  

Join us in early February to hear Dr. Bettina L. Love discuss the struggles and possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system where all students are thriving, not simply surviving. Learn about the importance of culturally responsive and sustaining teaching and learning practices in the classroom, examine the impact of America's racism on Black children and Black families, and how to foster social justice classrooms and schools.

Dr. Love will speak for 30 minutes followed by Q&A. We encourage you to read Dr. Love’s book We Want to Do More Than Survive in advance and to submit questions during the event.

Event will be hosted as a Zoom webinar.

Cost: $10 general, $5 student (any university or college student)
