#CUEtalks Speaker Series: Lost Strategies for Community Agency

October 16, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker

Join us in welcoming Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker as the fall 2018 #CUEtalksSpeaker Series lecturer. She 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 The Lost Education Of Horace Tate: Uncovering The Hidden Heroes Who Fought For Justice In Schools.

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, and to highlight specific strategies from African American history that might provide useful maps for universities and communities today who wish to forge more successful educational opportunities for children.

This event is free and open to the public, though registration is appreciated. A reception will follow the lecture.

Continue the conversation with Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker in the community at REFLECTION INTO ACTION the next day, Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 5:30 p.m.!
