A Black Education Network wants to ensure that Black students reach their full potential through virtual conversations with Black parents.

“Kasserian Ingera,” or “And how are the children,” is a traditional Masai greeting that acknowledges the high value the Masai always place on their children’s well-being.

You’re invited to a three-part series with Black local, state and national experts addressing the question “How are the children?” by discussing the following topics:

  1. The preexisting challenges in the community, the impact of COVID-19 on education and our country after George Floyd
  2. The educational challenges Black children face across the continuum of education.
  3. The solutions we can generate to ensure academic success in a virtual learning environment

These conversations will be moderated by Debra Watkins, Founder Emerita & Director of Strategic Partnerships at A Black Education Network (formerly the California Alliance of African American Educators).

Independent Black School + What resources might Black parents need?
