Watch our Institute for Emancipatory Education Speaker Series: Dr. David Stovall

Watch out Institute for Emancipatory Education speaker series! Dr. David Stovall talks about the constructs of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Abolition to consider emancipatory education. If we are trying to create an education that liberates those who experience white supremacy in the form of isolation, marginalization, and dehumanization, we must be clear about the current socio-political moment. We must be willing to take away lessons of history to build a praxis (action and reflection in the world in order to change it) centered on the needs of our communities. Any struggle for change, time, space, and will is central moving forward.
