Black Minds Matter Course

Posted on: October 24th, 2017 by ncbaaso

Black Minds Matter is “a FREE Public Course” offered at El Centro College in Dallas, Texas. This course is designed to raise the national consciousness about issues facing Black boys and men in education. The course will intentionally draw linkages between the pervasive undervaluing and criminalization of Black boys and men in society and how those same patterns are evident in school, college and university settings. Some of the many guest speakers and interviewees will include:

Dr. Luke Wood, Dean’s Distinguished Professor of Education, San Diego State University

Patrisse Cullors, Co-Founded, Black Lives Matter

Ilyasah Shabazz, Educator, Activist and daughter of Malcom X

Tyrone Howard, Professor of Urban Education, University of California-Los Angeles

S. Lee Merritt, The Merritt Law Firm & Attorney for the family of Jordan Edwards
