“The obligation of anyone who thinks of himself as responsible is to examine society and try to change it and to fight it–at no matter what risk. This is the only hope society has. This is the only way societies change.” James Baldwin, A Talk to Teachers
Call For Proposals:
It is a pleasure to invite you to the first annual Educators of Color Conference. The conference is organized by a grassroots group of Cambridge, Rindge and Latin educators of color and will take place at CRLS on June 11, 2016 from 8:00-1:00.
The Educators of Color Group was re-started at CRLS (after a period of dormancy) in 2014 to address issues related to the recruitment, retention and long-term flourishing of educators of color. We hope that you will consider submitting a proposal that will address issues relevant to this audience. The theme of the Educators of Color Conference is “Affirming and Sustaining Our Excellence.”
This year’s conference will feature a keynote by Dr. Theresa Perry, author of Young, Gifted and Black: Promoting High Achievement among African-American Students and workshops from expert educators of color from the greater Boston area.
Please join us for this important event, spread the word and bring colleagues with you. Also, please consider submitting a proposal to share your own excellent work. The deadline to submit proposals is April 1, 2016.
Please bookmark this website and check back often for exciting updates and information!
The link for proposal submission is forthcoming.
