BLACK HISTORY EDUCATION ONLINE CONFERENCE
Time & Location
About the Event
The 3rd Annual Black History Education Conference: “And How Are the Children? Black Education Matters” will provide a venue where educators across the state and country will be able to share policies, practices, programs, and procedures that have proven effective in promoting high levels of achievement for those often being under served in our school systems and communities.
Whenever members of the African Masai tribe greet one another, they ask a question: “Kasserian ingera?” Not “How do you do?” or “How’s it going?” but rather “How are the children?” It’s wonderfully revealing about the values of the Masai society. Their first concern is the next generation.
We are asking that you open your heads, hands, and hearts to collaborate with us to close the stark gaps that exist for many of the students and families that we serve in our communities and across the country. Whatever challenges we face and achievements we make, the question that goes to the heart of the health of our homes, schools, and communities should be the same: “And how are the children?” Our collective goals should lead us to being able to answer—”ALL of the children are well!”
