The C.O.W.S. w/ Dr. Howard Stevenson: Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools

Tuesday, May 9th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Howard Stevenson. The Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education and Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Stevenson crafts practical methods to teach “emotional and racial literacy skills to families and youth.” His areas of expertise include: African-American psychology, racial/ethnic socialization and negotiation, racial literacy, and violence prevention. We’ll discuss his 2014 publication, Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools: Differences That Make a Difference, examines strategies to “resolve face-to-face racially stressful encounters that reflect racial profiling in public spaces, fuel social conflicts in neighborhoods, and undermine student emotional well-being and academic achievement in the classroom.” A C.O.W.S. listener recently saw Dr. Stevenson in Missouri and asked him if thought Dr. Welsing’s definition of White Supremacy was accurate.
