To get started, watch Bettina Love, Ph.D., M.Ed., talk about her book, We Want to Do More Than Survive (start at 7:25) (95 minutes) where she shares her thoughts on how educators, parents and community leaders can advocate for “education freedom” for students through civic engagement and activism. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz, MA, Ph.D., discusses the need to start deep self-work within oneself and Genevieve DeBose Akinnagbe, MA, speaks about the importance of telling students early on that they matter.

  • System justification
  • Educational survival complex
  • Spirit murdering
  • Health disparities among children
  • Critical race theory
