R(ED) Table Talk: Experiencing Black Joy & Womanhood
University of Michigan School of Education—Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action (2021)
A dialogue facilitated by Black women to highlight the voices of Black women in higher education and K-12 schools. We explore the intersections of their gender, racial, and professional identities. The panel includes Mimi Owusu, second-year doctoral student in Educational Studies; Jessyca Matthews, Michigan high school teacher; Dr. Maisie Gholson, Assistant Professor in Educational Studies; Alyssa Brandon, TeachingWorks Communications Coordinator; and Anna Almore, second-year doctoral student in the Joint Program in English & Education. They discuss their views on the field of education, as well as the importance of self-care and community.
