Racial Justice and Literacy Webinar

The David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching and the Literacy Studies faculty at the University of South Florida is hosting a webinar, "Racial Justice in Literacy." The webinar will be Wednesday, August 18th from 7:00-8:30 p.m. EDT. This webinar is designed to discuss how the field of literacy has responded to race and racism through an examination of equity and racial justice in literacy research. We present an overview of how race has operated as a construct in literacy research, teaching, and assessment. Through scenarios that draw on practical experiences with literacy in and beyond classrooms, we invite parents, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders, to identify how racism functions daily in literacy. In turn, we provide recommendations for advancing racial justice in literacy research.
