Nurturing Black Children:
Black Mothers Speak About Raising & Teaching Black Lives in White Spaces

Friday, February 22
4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Portland Association of Teachers (PAT)
45 NE 8th Ave, Portland
(Near Benson High School)

Three Black mothers who are also educators will share their experiences about raising, educating, and supporting Black children in mostly white spaces. Through storytelling and prose, these moms will provide glimpses into the conversations they have with their own children as well as Black students in their care.

Participants will leave with more understanding about the dilemmas these moms wrestle with as parent educators and with insight into how to keep Black lives safe in schools. Participants will have time to discuss, ask questions, and plan for their own classrooms. The highly acclaimed Rethinking Schools book, Teaching for Black Lives, will be for sale at the event.

Featuring Special Guests: Dyan Watson, Natalie Labossiere, and Kara Hinderlie Stroman.
