Our 2nd annual Conversation with Black Teacher Project was a success, as community members and educators came together for a timely Women's History Month conversation. Guests came to observe Black female teachers in discussion about how they navigate structural racism and sexism in the workplace and beyond.

Attendees and conversation participants were moved, gained clarity and left inspired and affirmeda result of the love of sisterhood and community. Think we're biased? Read what attendees had to say below.

What I enjoyed most about the event was:

“The feeling of sisterhood and connection”

 “The voices, the synergy and intergenerational wisdom.“

"We are all powerful as a unified force of positive movement for students."

"Fellowship and storytelling with African Teachers and Women!"

What tools and resources from today’s workshop do you want to integrate into your teaching practice as it relates to practicing self-care and sustainability?

"Telling myself that I am worth it, while not second-guessing myself based on others perceptions"

"CELEBRATE YOURSELF! My strengths, weaknesses, successes, and failures."
