Michaux, Jr. School of Education Building located at 700 Cecil Street on North Carolina Central University’s campus and is intended to give K-12 educators and pre-service teachers an opportunity to engage in sessions centered on the impact of systemic racism and ways of dismantling it in our schools. ? We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Nolan L. Cabrera, an award-winning scholar and Associate Professor in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona, will be delivering the keynote address. Dr. Cabrera will be speaking on the Tuscan Unified School District and the fight for Mexican American Studies. He is heavily involved with the case where the U.S. District Court ruled that school officials' "racial animus" motivated shutting down the ethnic studies curriculum. Come learn about how the courses positively impacted students' educational experiences and how to fight for ethnic studies in your local district. ?
