Racial Literacy Roundtables

Led by collaborators from UNL (TLTE, CYAF and the Teacher Scholars Academy), UNO, and UNK, the Racial Literacy Roundtables are for 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.
