Wisdom Wednesdays: Black Genius Discussion Group
June 10, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Save for Later
At Village of Wisdom (VOW) we protect Black Genius by centering the needs of Black families and children in the pursuit of culturally affirming classrooms. Alongside caregivers, school leaders, community members, and other champions for racial equity in schools we seek to investigate and challenge the systemic barriers that limit the full expression of Black students’ genius.
We believe that the full realization of Black Genius relies on the racial climate of their learning environment. The racial climate can be determined by the presence of the following elements:
- Interest Awareness
- Multi-Cultural Navigation
- Racial Pride
- Selective Trust
- Social Justice
The Black Genius Profile captures these elements, creating a shared language between families and teachers about ways to support their student’s genius. Join our weekly parent discussion group to connect, unpack and exchange wisdom about Black Genius!
Zoom information will be sent ahead of our meeting. Please contact Taylor Webber-Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
