From Woodson to Wakanda: Emancipatory Pedagogy & The Miseducation of the Negro in American Higher Education Today   

Presenter: Dr. Terrell Strayhorn

Webinar hosted by The National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE)

In this interactive webinar, Dr. Terrell Strayhorn, a leading voice on issues of race, equity, and diversity, will draw bright lines of connection between Woodson’s book and Coogler’s film to advance the need for “Emancipatory Pedagogy (EP),” a form of teaching/advising that empowers the disempowered, documents the undocumented, and liberates the learner to the place of possibility. Using a smooth blend of theory, social commentary, empirical evidence, and anecdotes, Strayhorn will offer specific strategies for doing EP in higher education. Come to learn, to be challenged, provoked, and inspired; leave ready to enact what’s learned in social justice work, to make a difference for students, and to create change as an educator! This session particularly benefits higher education professionals charged with developing, managing, or carrying out a race or social justice agenda like faculty researcher, chief diversity officers, multicultural services staff, graduate students, and K-20 outreach workers. 

Light refreshments will be provided.
