Racial Literacy Roundtables

Led by collaborators from TLTE, CYAF and the Teacher Scholars Academy, the Racial Literacy Roundtables are for CEHS students, particularly pre-service teachers, to work on developing racial literacy skills. Specifically, racial literacy is “a skill and practice in which individuals are able to probe the existence of racism and examine the effects of race and institutionalized systems on their experiences and representations in U.S. Society” (Sealey-Ruiz, 2017, p. 129). Together through the Racial Literacy Roundtables, we are seeking to find and claim our abilities as anti-racists from a variety of backgrounds and identities.

"Race is something you can’t just ignore, and treating everyone the same is not the answer. We need to embrace everyone’s differences and learn about everyone’s story.”

Racial Literacy Roundtables for Spring 2022

The Racial Literacy Roundtables will be hosting three online roundtables during Spring Semester 2022 (Feb. 4th, March 9th, and April 13th) as well as four webinars to launch Black History Month (Jan. 31st-Feb. 3rd). Please note the dates and times below for the different events.

This semester we will be tracking participation and offering various incentives for ongoing participation! During our first Roundtable on Feb. 4th, we will hold a raffle for all of those who have participated in the Black History Month webinars to win a $100 gift card to the UNL Bookstore and other prizes like Racial Literacy Roundtable swag! Then, at the end of the semester, all of those who participated in all three of the Roundtables (Feb. 4th, March 9th, and April 13th) will get some Racial Literacy Roundtable swag! Please come and participate in as many of these important discussions as you can!

Each event will be at https://unl.zoom.us/j/98372407482.
