Art of Teaching Director Dr. Denisha Jones leads "Black Lives Matter at School" Week of Action February 1-5, 2021

Filed under:

While some may say that leading Sarah Lawrence College’s Art of Teaching program would leave little time for anything else, director and faculty member Dr. Denisha Jones begs to differ. February 1-5, 2021, the first week of Black History Month, Dr. Jones is leading the “Black Lives Matter at School” national week of action - a highlight of the movement's year of action that comes on the heels of her recently published book “Black Lives Matter at School” which the Washington Post writes, “springs from a movement that started several years ago to resist racism and imbue anti-racism in school curriculums as well as educational practices and policies.”

Below is information regarding the events Dr. Jones will lead and/or participate in. For more information about the movement and coalition, and to find local events across the country, please visit the Black Lives Matter at School website.
