“Lifting As We Climb” - Challenging Colorism & Engaging an Anti-Racist Framework as POC
Through collective sharing, problem-solving, and community-building this series aims to explicitly address and elucidate the connection between the social location of educators of color and the broader scope of anti-racist pedagogy/praxis.
*Materials shared with attendees and derived during the course of the series will be curated in a living repository for all to contribute to and draw from.
Day 1: “Sharing Narratives - Experiences”
The framework for this conversation involves the sharing of experiences and/or expertise regarding relevant tough situations we’ve encountered as POC who are also:
Educators/Teachers (i.e. in the classroom)
Scholars/Researchers (i.e. in our research)
Members of the academy (i.e. in academic spaces writ-large, including those in which we’ve been students)
Day 2: “Workshopping Resources & Collective Problem-Solving” & “Building up”
Through discussion/platicas the group will identify 2 to 3 elements derived from our collective experiences and expertise to develop as starting points for the day 2 workshop
