Empowered Educators: Art & Race Talk
Empowered Educators is an ongoing partnership between the Carnegie Museum of Art, Center for Urban Education at U Pitt, Remake Learning, and the Western PA Writing Project. For 4 years, the program has worked with hundreds of educators with an ongoing core community of practice to use the exhibits of the museum as a catalyst to practice engaging in "Race Talk." Our talk will review four years of collective learning, including specific questions and activity modules to take with you.
