The Fugitive Life of Black Teaching: A History of Pedagogy and Power
In this talk, Jarvis Givens chronicles the history of "fugitive pedagogy": African Americans' subversive traditions of teaching and learning from the slavery era through Jim Crow. Tracing the life and work of famed educator and historian Carter G. Woodson, Givens reveals an expansive world of African American teachers who cultivated dreams and aspiration in generations of students, despite a world order built on black subjection. Givens explains how much of this work took place through discreet, quiet acts of resistance, and argues that black educators' pedagogical traditions contributed to the Long Black Freedom Struggle and anti-racist teaching in the United States.
