Episode 3: Sistah’s Circle: Remembering bell hooks with Dr. Nakia Gray-Nicolas & Dr. Aisha Haynes “Any woman who wishes to be an intellectual, to write non-fiction, to deal with theory, faces a lot of discrimination coming her way and perhaps even self-doubt because there aren’t that many who’ve gone before you. And I think that the most powerful tool we can have is to be clear about our intent. To know what it is we want to do rather than going into institutions thinking that the institution is going to frame for us".” - bell hooks In this week’s episode of Race Through Education, we brin ..read more

Welcome back to season 2 of Race Through Education! We took some time off to work towards these degrees and get our minds right. But we are back with a brand new season and to kick things off we are talking Black education with Dr. Robert P. Robinson. When you think about Black education in the United States do you go back to 1619 or does your mind bring you to 1954 and Brown v. Board of Education?

RTE Episode 10: Black Resistance and the Opt-Out Movement with our co-host Fawziah Qadir

In our last episode, this season we ask the question "Should Black parents have the right to opt-out their children from taking standardized assessments?" Though mostly defined as a white, suburban, and upper-income-led movement, Black parents are beginning to use the opt-out movement as one of the many ways to resist education reforms that prioritize standardized exams over student learning. Our co-host and EdD Leadership and Policy NYU Steinhardt candidate Fawziah Qadir is in the hot seat to talk about her research in standardized exams and Black resistance in the opt-out movement.

If you read or watch the news, you would easily believe that Black boys and men's educational trajectories are bleak and that they are impervious to success (Harper, 2012). While Black boys and men are one of the most marginalized groups in the U.S., the perception that they do not care about education is not true. In an effort to dispel these stereotypes and perceptions, we center the lived experience of an early-career Black male scholar and professor. Listen as we unpack what it means to be a Black man on campus, from Black identity formation as an undergrad student at a Historically Black ..read more

Black and Latinx communities are the core of Race Through Education. When we started this podcast, we wanted to make sure that we were amplifying the voices and centering Black and Brown learners' lived experiences. And what better way to do that than through your own voices? Over the spring and summer of 2020, we spoke to our communities and prompted them with questions related to intersections of race, racism, and their educational experiences. What we heard back was fascinating. On some level, the common theme was that each of our community members experienced a racialized education experie ..read more

RTE Episode 7: What’s Homeschooling Gotta do with Black Folks? featuring Dr. Cheryl Fields Smith

by Madison and Fawziah
1y ago
Homeschooling in the United States is generally perceived as a white, middle-class, religious-based schooling phenomenon (Fields-Smith, 2015). National estimates put the number of homeschooled students at 3% of the population, about two million students (Redford, Battle, and Bielick, 2017). Black parents are increasingly homeschooling and in the last 15 years, their numbers have doubled from 103,000 to about 220,000. Black parents’ reasons for electing to homeschool are increasingly related to issues of racism, segregated schools, and a lack of culturally relevant curriculum. We are joined thi ..read more
