Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools
brochure: promoting racial literacy

Dr. Howard C. Stevenson, the Constance E. Clayton Professor of Urban Education at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools: Differences That Make a Difference, will discuss his extensively researched and provocative volume. In it he explores how schools are places where racial conflicts often remain hidden at the expense of a healthy school climate and the well-being and achievement of students of color.

By incorporating a live demonstration with students on stage, Dr. Stevenson will reveal how racial stress undermines student achievement and offer workable strategies for students, educators, and social services staff to improve their racial literacy skills.

Books will be available for purchase.

Presented in collaboration with the University of Missouri–St.Louis Department of Educator Preparation, Innovation, and Research. Sponsored by the Des Lee Urban Education Speakers' Series, the Orthwein Endowed Professor for Lifelong Learning in Sciences, and the Emerson Electric Endowed Professor for Technology and Learning. Additional support provided by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis.
