Event description

Description

The Office of Opportunity and Achievement Gaps Speaker Series (OAG Speaker Series) focuses on issues pertinent to and pressing for “urban education” and the sound instruction of students who have been historically marginalized. The goal of the series is to serve as a window through which we can engage Boston Public Schools’ diverse stakeholders, brand Boston as a school district dedicated to progressive change, and begin a historic stride towards true equity and the elimination of opportunity and achievement gaps.

Dr. DeGruy is the author of the groundbreaking book, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing which addresses the residual impacts of trauma on African descendants in the Americas. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome lays the groundwork for understanding how the past has influenced the present, and opens up the discussion of how we can use the strengths we have gained to heal.
