“Activating Melanin in Black Education” Lunch SessionIn an education system designed to reinforce racial inequities and injustice, what does it mean for Black students to matter? How does knowledge of self contribute to personal and collective empowerment for Black students? These and other essential questions will be addressed in this session through a discussion of Black critical theory and education practices that actualize Black student achievement. Additionally, the fundamental connection between knowledge of self and love will be emphasized as a way to deepen our discussion of potential pathways towards education transformation that are cultivated via shifts in teaching and learning strategies, curriculum, and policy.

KOS-Melanin-ology Lunch SessionsWe are hosting the new lunch series “KOS-Melanin-ology”. The goal of these lunch sessions is to provide a casual forum to share your insight into the topic of melanin and its benefits. It also allows us a chance to get to know more about ourselves in this struggle and find out if there are opportunities for collaboration. This is a casual “presentation” that can take many forms–a short demo, an interactive exercise, a PowerPoint with a description of what you’re doing, or an open conversation. Presentations should be 30 minutes and allow for 30 minutes of questions/conversations. If you’d like to do something interactive, that would be ideal–but keep your goals simple so we have time to chat. If you are interested in sharing a message or an initiative, please let us know! Fill out this Doodle Poll to let us know if you plan on attending and what date works best for you. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
