Anti-Racist Education: Why Extremists Fear It and We All Need It

Troublemaker Training Special Event

Lucretia Berry  β€’  September 28 2023 

I have been invited by the organization, Red, Wine & Blue to be a speaker for their Troublemaker Training series. I will share on what anti-racist education and my anti-racism high school elective actually entail. Students who have taken Anti-Racism 101, the course I designed and have taught since 2018, will participate in order to share their experiences and perspectives. We will conclude with a moderated Q&A. The goal is to share factual information regarding anti-racist education in order to help extinguish the fires of dis-information being pumped into our communities.

Extremists want to limit race in education and push disinformation to scare parents about school curriculums. But what exactly is an anti-racist education and why is it impactful for ALL students? Join us to hear from Lucretia Berry, founder of Brownicity and a curriculum specialist for Community School of Davidson (NC) where she designed and teaches Antiracism 101. Learn why anti-racist education empowers everyone and how it develops critical thinking and solution oriented skills.
