Meeting Description: 

On behalf of the Black Community Services Center and the Black Studies Collective, we are proud to announce our upcoming Intellectual Roundtable: A Conversation with Dr. Jarvis Givens, which will be held Wednesday, May 12th, 2021; this event is co-sponsored by CORE, BGSA, and CSBE. Limited copies of the book will be available and delivered to students who are interested in receiving a copy on a first come, first served basis. We looking forward to seeing each and every one of you during this generative dialogue!

Dr. Givens is an assistant professor of education and African American studies at Harvard University and he will give a talk on his recently released book, Fugitive Pedagogy: Carter G. Woodson and the Art of Black Teaching (Harvard University Press, 2021). Fugitive Pedagogy reveals how black teachers challenged white supremacy in schools and in the world, often through clandestine means. It also shows how black teachers created space for students to encounter beauty, to develop incisive social analysis, and to dream up new worlds despite having been born into one more hostile than hospitable.
