The State Of Race: Education (Virtual)
Join GBH and The Boston Globe for the second event in a series of virtual forums examining race and inequality in Massachusetts. Produced in partnership with the NAACP Boston Branch and GBH WORLD, “The State of Race” will continue on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 7:30pm ET with a discussion on how racial inequities in Massachusetts school systems disproportionately impact communities of color.
A panel of experts including Gloria Ladson-Billings, former Kellner Family Distinguished Professor of Urban Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Bianca Vázquez Toness, Education Reporter at The Boston Globe and Jamal Grant, Founder and Director of The NET Mentoring Group will join our event host, award-winning journalist Dan Lothian, in a wide-ranging conversation surrounding challenges communities of color are facing as schools reopen in the state. We will explore how the opportunity gap and digital divide impact our public education programs and much more.
The event is free but space is limited and reservations are required.
This is a Forum About Race and Inequality in Partnership with the NAACP Boston Branch and WORLD Channel.
This monthly series looks at different issues of race and inequality. The conversations will be supported by research released by the NAACP.
