With a renewed social interest in understanding systemic racism, the Graduate School of Education at UCR is hosting a panel to discuss how various scholars strengthen the racial literacies— capacities to identify and disrupt how racism lives in our society and institutions (Guinier, 2004)— of various education stakeholders. Panelists will start by conceptualizing racial literacy, followed by examples of how it lives in their work through research, teaching, and educator professional development. Through a K-12 Ethnic Studies classroom, an undergraduate course on Black Brilliance, a racial justice teacher development program, and an exploration of how racism intersects with ableism in higher education policies and practices, the panel will offer models for how racial literacy can be advanced across the K-20 educational pipeline. 

** Questions may be submitted on the registration form, or by email to deanna.wheeler@ucr.edu **
