With the passing of John Lewis, we have lost a national treasure, tireless champion of democracy, & true hero. As writes, “he will continue, even in his passing, to serve as a beacon in that long journey towards a more perfect union.”

A must! Ed leaders of good will must help us think, SCIENCE, plan & navigate out of the COVID-19 crisis &, in the process, finally, substantively resolve the silent (& in ways more devasting) crises of EQUITY, EFFECTIVENESS, & MISEDUCATION for US children of color.

Right. The beforetimes was a disaster already. We have the information we need and the guidance from our own experts about how this can go well. I honestly believe that if we treated the crisis as an opportunity we could use it to upend the status quo.

Right? Grounded in science as well please? I find it fascinating that media coverage of the virus consults experts on how to avoid medical disaster but the education disaster for communities of color is a foregone conclusion. Who does that narrative serve?

"Reopening schools that maximize safety, learning, the well-being of children, staff & tchrs will require new investments. We call on our leaders: Provide the resources to ensure funding doesn't stand in the way of safely educating & keeping children safe.

Every single Hamilton song had me ready to lose it at one point or another. My goodness that masterpiece brings out all the feelings I hold so carefully inside.

When the facilitator says that the markings on the Ishango Bone suggest that the creators of math were probably African women. Math is in the DNA of black women. Btw-the Ishango Bone is the oldest table of prime numbers. #5.3

Thread for white people confused about or confused how to talk about why Rayshard Brooks’ death was an unconscionable murder and the dissecting of these events as justification is equally unconscionable.

T'would take you 19 hours of your life to listen. We gotta learn and know this stuff. We're not just making racism up out of thin air. It was crafted carefully.

If your summer plans for yourself or the educators you affect aren’t about understanding the history of the lies about black people’s minds and aren’t about what it takes to teach what black children deserve, you will not be ready to give them justice when they return in the fall
