Education Department to Host Webinar with Scholar and Activist Jesse Hagopian
Black Lives Matter at School: From a Day of Protest to a Lifetime of Practice
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (EDT)
This one-hour webinar hosted by the Education Department will feature Seattle educator and scholar activist Jesse Hagopian. As a key leader in the Black Lives Matter at School Movement, Hagopian has organized within local, national, and international networks to bring the uprising for Black lives into schools.
In recognition of this pivotal moment in U.S. history, Hagopian and his fellow organizers are now leading a Black Lives Matter at School Year of Purpose, challenging their colleagues across the country to come together to directly address racist policies and practices in schools. For these educators, the goal is not only to reflect on the legacy of white supremacy in U.S. schools but also to commit to a lifetime of anti-racist practice.
