ASALH and PBS Books present A Special Conversation between Jarvis Givens & Cornel West

May 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

FREE COMMUNITY EVENT — OPEN TO PUBLIC ON ASALH TV

Professors Jarvis Givens and Cornel West will discuss the life of Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950) as a student, teacher, and education leader. But, as Givens shows in his new book, Fugitive Pedagogy: Carter G. Woodson and the Art of Black Teaching (Harvard University Press, 2021), Woodson was the product of longstanding subversive traditions among black schoolteachers, the educators who taught him and those whom he worked alongside. Givens and West will discuss why black teachers were so central to the long black freedom movement, and what lessons we might glean from their legacy as we search for meaningful education today. This conversation will be moderated by Professor Brandon Terry.
