UW Webinar to Focus on Creating Black Studies-Centered Curriculum

November 9, 2020

The University of Wyoming’s Black Studies Center will host a webinar that examines what it takes to create a Black studies-centered curriculum Tuesday, Nov. 10.

The free webinar, titled “The Complexities and Realities of Creating a Black Studies Curriculum,” will begin at 5 p.m. Those interested in viewing the webinar can do so by joining via a Zoom link at https://uwyo.zoom.us/j/96413637942. This is the second webinar of a four-part series.

“This installment of the webinar series will examine the complexities, layered nuances and realities of creating and injecting a Black studies-centered curriculum in a formal education setting,” says Fredrick Douglass Dixon, the center’s director and an assistant professor in the UW School of Culture, Gender and Social Justice. “The discussion will center the need for formal and informal relationships to support the classroom goals and community engagement initiatives.”

Dixon will moderate the panel discussion.

Panelists are:

-- Angela Clay, an eighth grade social studies teacher at the W.E.B. DuBois Academy in Louisville, Ky., where she holds the position of department chair. 

-- Khalid el-Hakim, founder and curator of the Black History 101 Mobile Museum. The mobile museum is an award-winning collection of over 7,000 original artifacts of Black memorabilia dating from the trans-Atlantic slave trade era to hip-hop culture.

-- Cedric Washington, dean of students at ACE Amandla High School in Chicago. He also is the executive director of N.E.R.D (Nurturing Education Rewarding Determination) Youth Services Inc.

The next UW Black Studies Center webinar will take place Thursday, Dec. 10.
