What works for African-American students works for all students. In the wake of lives lost in the African-American community, League of Education Voters has committed to listen, learn from, and amplify voices of the African-American community because they are at the center of the movement for racial justice.
In our free webinar October 14 at 12:30pm, we have assembled another statewide panel of African-American thought leaders, community leaders, business owners, and educators to share their perspectives on current events and what works to effectively educate African-American students. Our panelists include Dr. Debra R. Sullivan, educator, Past President of the Seattle Affiliate of the National Black Child Development Institute (BCDI-Seattle), and author of Cultivating the Genius of Black Children; Dr. Marcus Pimpleton, Executive Director for Equity, Partnerships, and Student Engagement for the Yakima School District; Debrena Jackson Gandy, national best-selling author, 25-year business owner, keynote speaker, Founder of Seattle’s ELEVATE Empowerment Movement, and former college Trustee; and Dr. Thelma Jackson, owner of Foresight Consulting, Former college Trustee, former multi-term school board member and Chair, and has served on Task Forces and Advisory Councils for five Governors of the State of Washington.
