Our monthlong deep dive into Education is coming to a close, but not without one last inspiring conversation. Teachers. We’ve all had them, but how many Teachers or Professors of Color did you have when you were a student? After a long pause and some mental time travel, “a few” was the answer Kaytie and I managed to muster. We want to help change that by having a conversation about the importance of having Teachers and Professors of Color in the classroom. We have a great guest on today who will be breaking down the concept of Mirrors and Windows, telling us what Justice in Education looks like, and how communities can help diversify the teachers who teach our children.
