About the State of Black Education Oakland Series:
An engagement series looking at the past, present and future of Black education in Oakland, that deliberately listens and incorporates elders and historical activists, the NAACP, Black educators, Black students and families, Black elected officials and also the broader research community, in reviewing history, surveying the current state and also making concrete recommendations going forward.
Author Richard Rothstein will discuss his recent book, The Color of Law, and the role of the state in creating and maintaining segregation. The event will focus on the impact of redlining, “urban redevelopment,” industrial zoning, and other government actions in West Oakland.
The panel will feature activists, elected officials, and community members reflecting on how we got here and the role of government and private actors in remedying it.
Multi Ethnic & CM/Alumni of Color Gathering, May 10, 2018 5:00 pm
We’ll break bread together, have the opportunity to learn from our 2nd year CMs that attended CM of Color Summits sponsored by our TFA National Team (AAPI, African American, and LatinX Conferences) and commit to taking action as a result of our experiences and learning.
Hecho en México includes some of the most acclaimed and striking documentary films from Mexico in recent years. The series explores the role that cultural and social values play in the memory, identity, and resilience of today’s Mexican society, delving into themes of adaptation and resistance in the face of adversity. From the trauma of drug-war related violence, to the challenges of extreme environmental conditions and the daily struggles of indigenous peoples, these films provide a portal into real Mexican lives, telling compelling stories and illustrating social challenges in the best tradition of documentary filmmaking. Outside of a few film festivals, these films have never been shown in the United States. Presented by RoxCine.
The 4th Annual Trellis UnConference will bring students, teachers, administrators, activists, entrepreneurs, industry, and other Bay Area community members together to tackle questions related to STEM teaching and learning. We start from a position that STEM teaching is a sociopolitical act of social justice, and that access to STEM experiences, courses, majors, careers, and jobs should not disproportionately exclude huge portions of our community. We work for and with Bay Area teachers and students for access, opportunity, and STEM power.
2018 theme: What does it mean to (re-)humanize STEM teaching, learning, and innovation?
