Honoring Black Boys and Men in the Age of #BlackLivesMatter: Critically Conscious Reflections From Women Teachers, Teacher Educators, and School-Community Activists

Sun, April 15, 8:15 to 9:45am, New York Hilton Midtown, Floor: Third Floor, Petit Trianon

Session Type: Symposium


In this symposium, women scholar educator activists present critical and creative essays that regard Blackness and maleness lovingly and respectfully. In their responsive essays, the authors each confront an issue intimated by stories presented in recent media landscapes: that Black boys and men embody threat (R); that Black boys and men are apathetic, unintelligent, and lazy, unable to address social ills that plague marginalized communities (K); that Black boys and men are not reliable as community leaders, lacking drive, resources, and the ability to attract and inspire followers who see them as trustworthy, capable, visionaries (L); that Black boys and men are socially and academically inept, economic derelicts, emotionally violent and morally bankrupt or uneducable (J).
