Educational Studies, The Dean of the College, The Office of Equity and Diversity, and Career Services hosted an event entitled “Black Urban Educators: Insider Philosophies”.
In a town hall format, alumni Howard Blue ’04, J.B. Gerald ’04, and Wayne (Moten) Smith ’10 addressed issues that pertain to predominantly black and brown urban schools and communities. Mr. Blue, Mr. Gerald, and Mr. Smith shared their perspectives as Black male educators. In addition to this, they were able to share their personal stories and their experiences as Educational Studies students here at Colgate. Their talk was followed by a discussion/Q&A session where students were able reflect on their own education as well as ask incredibly thought-provoking questions.
