BlackMindsMatter: Realities of black boys and men in education

Location: Student Services Center W201

Free Weekly Public Course via live webstream on #BlackMindsMatter
Next 6 Mondays: Starting 11/6 - 12/11 • 1:30PM - 3:30PM • Student Services Center W-201

Hosted by the Division of Student Affairs

Black Minds Matter addresses the experiences and realities of Black boys and men in education. The free and public weekly course draws parallels between the Black Lives Matter movement and the ways that Black minds are engaged in the classroom. The course will balance a discussion of issues facing Black male students as well as offer research-based strategies for improving their success.

Black boys are significantly more likely to be placed into special education or exposed to disciplinary practices such as suspensions or expulsions; hence removing them from learning environments.

A 2016 report on community college success measure shares that when compared to white students, black students are:
140% more likely to perceive that faculty don't appreciate them;
80% more likely to perceive that faculty are not interested in them;
80% more likely to believe that faculty avoid saying "hello" to them;
90% more likely to perceive that faculty don't want to engage or talk to them, about academic matters outside of the classroom.

Black Minds Matter supports the educational success of black boys and and men and intentionally engages educators and administrators to work against the disparities facing black students.

This course is open virtually (via lifestream) to anyone who would like to participate.

Typically, sessions will occur between 1:30pm to 3:30pm Hawaii Time, unless otherwise specified. During this time, you may expect opening commentary by J. Luke Wood as well as guest lectures, speeches, and interviews with key leaders in the field.

Following the 2 hour webinar, Karishma Kamath (Director of Student Conduct in Student Affairs) will lead a short discussion based on the weekly lecture.

The public version of this course represents the first hour of the actual Black Minds Matter course that is offered by the College of Education at San Diego State University (SDSU).
