Join the Office of Graduate Programs and the College of Education for the 2nd Annual Black History Month Fireside Chat.

The invited speaker for this year will be Kimberly Ransom from the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership. 

Ransom, an assistant professor in EPOL, is an interdisciplinary historian who has received significant accolades. Her research includes critical historical explorations of African American education and childhood, emphasizing art and exhibits. She focuses, as she has written, on “oral histories and material objects of Black children who once attended segregated schools in the Deep South during the Jim Crow Era (1940-1969).” Her work has a strong presence in the public sphere and speaks to the heart of what it means to become a culturally sustaining pedagogue and to understand critical history on, again, as she has written, “the unique ways Black children have taken up childhood despite having been marginalized from childhood status in America, particularly in and around schools.”

Lunch will be served, including vegan and gluten- and pork-free options.
