Presentations from Facing Race 2014

The Need for a Racial Justice Intervention in Education Reform

This panel of teachers, advocates and education experts will examine the history of the achievement gap. In particular the workshop will cover how it's been used as a justification for privatized school reform efforts and wedging big divisions between communities of color and traditionally liberal education advocates (eg unions, teachers, etc.).

Speakers: Chela Delgado, Judith Browne Dianis, Hany Khalil, Julianne Hing

Reframing Stories from a Racial Justice Perspective

Storytelling is an essential tool for engaging audiences and reframing the conversation from individual bias to one focused on structural racism and racial justice. In this workshop, Race Forward staff and Colorlines writers will present articles, pulled from our own Colorlines reporting, that demonstrate reframing work in action. With a reframing guide created by Race Forward, we will examine stories that “get it wrong” and practice reframing them to avoid harmful racial discourse practices.

Speakers: Aura Bogado, Julianne Hing, Rebekah Spicuglia
