As we honor Black History in the month of February, we also honor Love. Who better can we bring to the conversation about Black History and Love than Dr. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz? We are very excited to open our season with discussions on how we should be designing curriculum in a culturally responsive way that empowers black and latino male students. At the heart of this exploration, we hold the question, What does love have to do with it? Join us on zoom with Educator, Poet, Activist, and Interrupter Dr. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz.

The goal of Conversations with Thought Leaders is to strengthen the capacity of educators and advocates dedicated to the affirmative development of boys and young men of color. These free, virtual conversations provide an opportunity to learn and engage with prominent leaders in an inquiry focused on boys and young men of color. Our guests will be joined by Ron Walker and other members of the COSEBOC team.
