Racial Literacy Lecture Series


This Wednesday we look forward to your attendance at the Racial Literacy Lecture Series kickoff!

After eight years of the Racial Literacy Roundtable Series at Teachers College, Columbia University, I am very excited to announce a new component of the Racial Literacy Project  --  the Racial Literacy Lecture Series
Held once a year (during the spring semester), the 
Racial Literacy Lecture Series was created to bring thought leaders on the topic of race in education to Teachers College. Through unique presentation formats which include interactive, soul-stirring facilitation/performances, scholars will engage participants in a discussion on race (and topics related to race) through a creative approach!
I am honored to announce that Dr. Elaine Richardson (Dr. E), Professor at The Ohio State University will present her one woman review
"From Po H# on Dope to the Ph.D.: How Education Saved My Life" for the inaugural lecture. 
Woven together by monologues, music, images, and expressive storytelling, Dr. E shares how education redirected her life's path and led her to becoming an author and full professor of Literacy Studies.
The inaugural Lecture Series will kick-off on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 in Milbank Chapel at Teachers College, Columbia University from 7:00 - 9:00 pm
