Lost Strategies for Community Agency

The #CUEtalks Speaker Series welcomes author, Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker as the fall 2018 lecturer.

In her lecture, Dr. Siddle Walker will use the critical findings from "The Lost Education of Horace Tate" to discuss the tri-fold implication of the loss of aspiration, advocacy, and access in the schooling of children today.  She will also highlight specific strategies from African American history that might provide useful maps for universities and communities who may wish to forge more successful educational opportunities for children.

Dr. Walker is the Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of African American Educational Studies at Emory University and the president-elect of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Walker has studied the segregation of the American educational system for twenty-five years and recently published book, "The Lost Education Of Horace Tate: Uncovering The Hidden Heroes Who Fought For Justice In Schools".

This event is free and open to the public, though registration is appreciated.

A reception will follow the lecture.
