7th Annual Let’s Talk Racism Conference: 2023

March 17 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

Please join us for the 7th Annual Let’s Talk Racism Conference! Our theme this year is What’s at Stake?: Understanding the Attacks on Truth-Telling in Education. The keynote address will occur Friday, March 17th at 6:30pm and conference sessions will take place Saturday, March 18th from 9:00am – 4:00pm , at North Carolina Central University. We plan to be back in-person this year!

The purpose of this event is to give K-12 educators and pre-service teachers an opportunity to engage in sessions centered on the impact of systemic racism and ways of dismantling it in our schools. A CRT framework helps us achieve this goal. While educators are the target audience, we welcome all community members to participate.

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Gholnecsar (Gholdy) Muhammad is an Associate Professor of Literacy, Language, and Culture at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She has previously served as a classroom teacher, literacy specialist, school district administrator, curriculum director, and school board president. She studies Black historical excellence in education, intending to reframe curriculum and instruction today.

This event is co-sponsored by North Carolina Central University’s School of Education, we are (working to extend anti-racist education, Inc), and Ben & Jerry’s of Chapel Hill.
