Date TBA

Social-emotional learning is now a profitable business that often furthers an agenda of white supremacy and colonialism. Our panel offers personal and empirical evidence of how SEL harms, “catfishes,” and pushes children and youth of color to deny their community knowledges and experience, replacing authentic emotion with “feelings” that center white comfort. Alternatively we offer ways educators can harness righteous emotions to nurture humanizing, transformative, and liberatory learning spaces
