About this event

The Education Equity Center of St. Louis envisions a transformed education system that is free of racism and harmful practices, policies and systems negatively impacting black and brown students.

Given the histories of systemic racism that are deep and pervasive in education, we will need to understand and address the mental models we are operating from in order to move towards this vision. To this end, we build the anti-racist capacity of educators in the St. Louis region.

On July 27th-29th, we will host ARE (Anti-Racist Education) Summer School Workshops from 8:30am-12pm on the following topics:

  • July 27th: Grounding and Language: Introduction to Anti-Racist Education

We have been so ‘action driven’ to do Anti-racist work that we’ve overlooked fundamental truths about transformative change. This workshop is centered around intentional transformative change that happens when we begin with our inner work. We will pause, reflect on our individual journeys, and consider how to employ our findings to mobilize and inspire our anti-racist work in our communities.

  • July 28th: Root Cause and Impact: History and Data

Systemic racism runs deep and is pervasive in education. This workshop is centered around understanding the root cause and impact of oppression and socialization, how it manifests in us and affects the students we serve. We will spend time understanding and addressing our mental models in order to work towards a vision of equitable education for St. Louis.

  • July 29th: The History of White Fragility in America

This workshop will explore the history of White Fragility in America. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. From the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation...but how did we get here and what impact does white fragility have on us all?

Attending each session is encouraged but not required.
