Listen as Natasha A. Harrison and Romaine Harris talk about grief, the experience and the tools. Black people are experiencing grief on many levels. The reality of a medical pandemic has killed one in every 645 Black people. The on-going racial pandemic of white supremacy continues to prevent Black communities from thriving. Black people need a space to begin to process grief and have practices for the journey ahead.
"There is a common misconception that equity and equality mean the same thing — and that they can be used interchangeably, especially when talking about education. But the truth is they do not — and cannot."
- Blair Mann
“Part of helping kids believe they can be successful is showing them that they can be successful, and there’s no more impactful way to show them than by who’s in from of the class.”
~ Sharif El-Mekki
"Education can’t save us, we have to save education - To love all children, we must struggle to create schools we are taught to believe are impossible: Schools built on justice, love, and anti-racisim."
~ Dr. Bettina Love
