Sankofa in Me: Teaching for Liberation when Stories of Oppression are All We Know

Friday, November 15

Colorful mural with outlines of people and a plant growing out of the ground

Often we are tasked with engaging youth in critical discourse and reach limits to our own understanding of communities because of our own lack of awareness, knowledge, and background.  How do we tackle all of the missing perspectives when there are so many that need to be included? If we haven't been taught these perspectives, how can we deliver them to others?. In this session we will dive into critical pedagogies around engaging youth in active anti-racism and ethnic studies work that can help build healthy identity and connections while growing collective consciousness. Engage in activities, frameworks, and create new approaches to youth engagement that takes into account the intricate histories of marginalized peoples with Anthony Galloway, the Executive Director of the ARTS Us Center for the African Diaspora and co-host of MPR's "Counterstories."
