African-American Educational Excellence: Building on a Legacy of Achievement

Schedule

African-American Educational Excellence: Building on a Legacy of Achievement

Thursday, July 30
10:30 am - 11:45 am

We have centuries of evidence of academic and intellectual excellence in the African-American community. So why is excellence so often framed as something “new” or unattainable in our communities? This dialogue will work to change the narrative and dispel myths around African-American educational achievement. Speakers will offer suggestions for how the community can use a long legacy of achievement to help inspire and prepare today’s students.
