Film, Slavery By Another Name

Monday, April 23, 2018

7 pm
It was a shocking reality that often went unacknowledged, then and now: A
huge system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men,
that lasted until World War II. Based on the Pulitzer-Prize-winning book by
Douglas Blackmon, Slavery By Another Name tells the stories of men, charged
with crimes like vagrancy, and often guilty of nothing, who were bought and
sold, abused, and subject to sometimes deadly working conditions as unpaid
convict labor. Interviews with the descendants of victims and perpetrators
resonate with a modern audience. Christina Comer, who discovered how her
family profited from the system, comments that “the story is important no
matter how painful the reality is.”

RTC Institute on Teaching and Learning Informed by Cultural Knowledge

2017—2018

“Conscious Teaching and Learning, Now or Never”

April 24 – May 10, 2018

What does conscious teaching and learning mean for educators, parents, and
community builders?

·      How can educators and community builders position themselves to make
the changes that have the potential to strengthen learning for their
students?
·      How can students be “connected” to their learning?
·      What do children really need to know, be able to do and be like, to
navigate the world they have inherited?
·      How can students be supported in seeing themselves as scholars,
elders, and community builders?
·      What can school and community leaders do together to form productive
relationships?
·      What does it mean to educate children of color?

It is imperative that we more effectively learn about and build from the
historical and cultural knowledge that has been consistently omitted from
typical assessments about what works and will work for students and
communities of African heritage.

This year’s Institute will feature presentations by internationally
respected scholars and activists, Dr. Molefi Asante, Dr. Joy DeGruy, Dr.
Joyce E. King, Dr. Noma LeMoine, Dr. Hassimi Maiga, and Dr. Cirecie
West-Olatunji. Those already engaged in a number of forward thinking
leadership and professional and community supporting activities are invited
to engage with and participate in this year’s Institute as thinkers, community
builders and reviewers of Teacher Center work. Included are: Parent and
Community Leaders and Advocates, Black Lives Matter In School supporters,
Instructional Coaches, Mentors and their Interns, Victorious Minds Academy
schools and participants, Reading teachers, Self, Family, and Community K-2
curriculum teachers and other District and teacher leaders.
