African American Community

HOW DO WE EXPLAIN AND TEACH AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN ABOUT WHITE TERROR AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE AND BLATANT RACISM IN AMERICA PAST AND PRESENT?

Should the history of terror, lynchings, bombings, and murder of Black people by whites be taught at home and in schools? If so, to what level of intensity and depth must the educator pursue? Should we let the children view lynching images as an exemplary model for teaching? Or, should we wait until they are older, in order not to risk implementing some type of trauma response? These and other questions will be explored in this edition of the Black Reality Think Tank.

The host Dr. William Rogers and his guest, Ms. J LeShaé Jenkins, Executive Director at BOOM – Building Opportunities & Opening Minds and several of the programs educational summer interns will discuss “Teaching African American Youth About White Terror Racism.”

INVISIBILITY AND THE BLACK MALE

Black Men keep getting killed by the police while we keep killing each other. We are invisible to them because we are invisible to ourselves and each other. People talking about they didn’t know racism still exist. Are you blind? Look around your board rooms and see who is in leadership.

The Black Reality Think Tank Weekend Edition with co-host Lawanda Chambers and Leola Williams leads a discussion with a diverse community healing panel on this topic.

Host is Dr. William Rogers.
