Linda Tillman, a distinguished visiting faculty member in Loyola Marymount University’s School of Education, will address obstacles preventing African Americans and students from other racial and ethnic groups from achieving their highest potential in K-12 and post-secondary education at a virtual event on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
“And Still We Rise: Challenging Racial Narratives that Disrupt Educational Opportunities for People of Color,” runs from 4-5:30 p.m. via Zoom. The event is free and open to the public; guests can register here.
Tillman is a nationally renowned scholar on diversity, equity, and inclusion in education. She will discuss pre-and post- Brown v. Board of Education policies and practices and conclude her talk with a racial narrative that focuses on social, emotional, and academic excellence for people of color.
