On Tuesday, October 2nd, Duke Policy Bridge at Sanford, Duke Cook Center on Social Equity, and the Public School Forum of NC welcomed NY Times Magazine investigative journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones to open our Color of Education partnership. We were excited to have Hannah-Jones deliver an awesome keynote address to a North Carolina crowd of roughly 500 educators, school board members, researchers, and community members.
As we’ve highlighted in our prior communications, in 2019 and beyond, “Color of Education” will evolve into an annual summit as well as other statewide and regional gatherings, bringing together educators, policymakers, experts and other key stakeholders focused on achieving racial equity and eliminating racial disparities in education. For more information about October 2nd and future Color of Education events, please contact Policy Bridge.
