This campfire session will explore how schools act to control black bodies. Real-world examples show direct and subtle ways that black children are controlled in school. Participants can share their own stories from the perspectives of parent, former or current student, educator, advocate or community organizer. We will also apply our life experiences as a Black woman/scholar/advocate and a White woman/scholar/advocate to think about collective anti-racist methods.
