SYMPOSIUM ON DIVERSE EPISTEMOLOGIES: Righting the Historical Record: Highlighting the Significant Contributions of Black Psychologists in American Schools
"The field of educational psychology, while closely aligned with several adjacent branches of psychology, focuses on teaching and learning processes in support of the development of students within K-12 schools and beyond. Similar to other fields, educational psychology has been historically dominated by theories and empirical studies developed and carried out by white scholars who presented racially and culturally biased ideologies and which lacked Black perspectives. Couched within an Afrocentric and Critical Race Theory framework, the present paper sets out to right the historical record by uplifting the voices of four prominent Black educational psychologists who played an important role in American schools and who have been largely ignored in the educational psychology field. -Dr. Sharon Tettegah, Dr. Alison Cerezo, Dr. Terrance Wooten, and Dr. DeLeon Gray
Join us as we connect with Dr. Sharon Tettegah, Dr. Alison Cerezo, Dr. Terrance Wooten, and Dr. DeLeon Gray for their in person talk, Righting the Historical Record: Highlighting the Significant Contributions of Black Psychologists in American Schools! This talk is based on a paper that is coming out in the American Psychologist Spring 2023.
Appetizers & refreshments will be served!
