Empowering the Voice of the Black Mother

Date TBA

The incredible power of the Black Mother's voice has grown even stronger over the past few months with the release of the movie Miss Virginia and the national presence of Sarah Carpenter and the Powerful Parent Network. This panel will discuss how black mothers have navigated the ed reform movement to advocate for educational opportunities and equity for their children. We will discuss their successes and struggles—and the need to continue building stronger, more powerful voices in the movement.
