Event description

Description

Color of Education 2019 will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Raleigh Convention Center. This annual summit brings together educators, policymakers, nonprofit leaders, researchers, students, parents, philanthropists, and community members for a one-day convening focused on race, equity and education in North Carolina. The full day event will feature plenaries, workshops and panels during which speakers and attendees will discuss cross-sector strategies and policies for addressing racial inequities that persist within and beyond our public schools. Certificates for educators interested in obtaining continuing education units (CEUs) will be available upon request.

Award-winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates will headline the event as its closing keynote speaker. Coates will be reading from his forthcoming book and first novel The Water Dancer slated for release at the end of September. In addition to the reading and a Q&A with the audience, Coates will be joined on stage for an in-conversation with Dr. William “Sandy” Darity, Samuel DuBois Cook Professor of Public Policy at Duke University, about race in America. Each ticket purchase will include a free copy of Coates' first novel The Water Dancer.

The full-day event will feature sessions led by an impressive lineup of leading experts in the field. Ali Michael, Ph.D., will keynote the opening plenary session. Michael is the co-founder and director of the Race Institute for K-12 Educators, and is the award-winning author of Raising Race Questions: Whiteness, Inquiry and Education. Michael also teaches in the Diversity and Inclusion Program at Princeton University.
