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.”;
