Visiting Washington, D.C.
Session Type: Symposium
In this panel, we explore the literacy and learning practices, as well as the resilience and brilliance, of Black adolescents in and out of schools. Unfortunately, public schools that serve a large demographic of low-income students of color are often on the chopping block when it comes to both the material and human resources necessary for a 21st century education. It is society’s entrenched system of inequity that facilitates this educational marginalization. Yet Black adolescents demonstrate resilience and brilliance in academic, cultural, community, and social realms. Therefore, the papers in this panel address the question: What are Black adolescents doing, how are they doing it, and what lessons can teachers, teacher educators, and researchers learn with and from them?
