Where Do We Go from Here? Addressing Past and Present Racism in Public Education and Beyond: A Conversation with Nikole Hannah-Jones
Join Nellie Mae for the next event in our #EdEquityTalks series! We are excited to host Nikole Hannah-Jones, Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the 1619 Project, staff writer at The New York Times Magazine, Knight Chair of Race and Journalism at Howard University, where she is founding the Center for Journalism & Democracy, and co-founder of the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting.  

At Nellie Mae, we know that all students deserve to attend schools where they feel safe, supported, and respected. They are worthy of attending schools that affirm their identities and provide them a high quality and culturally responsive education that allows them to thrive. This is often not the reality, especially for Black, Latine, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian American young people. We are living in a world where there is legislation prohibiting that truth be taught in schools, and where young people learning about the accurate founding of this nation as it relates to slavery, white supremacy, and oppression is considered a divisive topic; where do we go from here? What lessons can we take from history and apply to today’s socio-political climate? We hope you join us as we collectively explore these topics.
