Black(ness) Is, Black(ness) Ain’t: Critical Race English Education
January 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Michigan Council of Teachers of English is pleased to present the fourth webinar in our 2020-2021 Webinar Series. The series will provide K-16 educators with tools to critically evaluate their beliefs, values, and practices and resources to design and enact antiracist pedagogies. All webinars are free and open to the public.
In this presentation, Dr. Lamar Johnson employs Critical Race English Education as a theoretical framework to critique anti-Black racism and violence within language and literacy studies and English education while simultaneously providing a racial justice-oriented framework that sheds love on the inherent beauty in Blackness. Dr. Johnson discusses the theoretical lineage of CREE and the need for critical race theories and pedagogies in ELA classrooms.
