Black Lives Matter: from Protest to Pedagogy

The BLM Movement is rooted in the frequency at which Black people's lives are devalued in society. The first part of this session will focus on the history of the movement, its connection to current K-12 pedagogy, and how this toxic relationship perpetuates racism and oppression in society. The second part of this session will focus on the benefits of turning the BLM Movement into pedagogical practice in the K-12 classroom; time will be spent on what this pedagogical strand looks like in teacher education programs. Furthermore, participants will learn how critical theory, the theoretical foundation for this summit, can create a socially just classroom -- and eventually a social just world.
