Courageous Conversations About Race

The current socio-political climate in the United States has reignited conversation about race and racism and K-12 educators have continued to express concern over the impact of colorblind attitudes and policy on student outcomes and their communities. As a means of addressing these concerns, this session facilitates discussions among educators, civic leaders, and the community's citizens, placing race at the center by using works of art as ...a catalyst toward deeper understanding of the intersection of racial identity, politics and social and educational outcomes in America. Using the works of Fred Wilson and Kara Walker, supplemented with pieces from the Albany Museum Of Art, the presenters will address strategies for tackling difficult topics related to race. This conversation is beneficial to all those looking to have a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding race and racism.
