A Black Education Network wants to ensure that Black students reach their full potential through virtual conversations with Black parents.
About this Event
"Kasserian Ingera,” or "And how are the children," is a traditional Masai greeting that acknowledges the high value the Masai always place on their children's well-being.
You're invited to a three-part series with Black local, state and national experts addressing the question “How are the children?” by discussing the following topics:
- The preexisting challenges in the community, the impact of COVID-19 on education and our country after George Floyd
- The educational challenges Black children face across the continuum of education.
- The solutions we can generate to ensure academic success in a virtual learning environment
These conversations will be moderated by Debra Watkins, Founder Emerita & Director of Strategic Partnerships at A Black Education Network (formerly the California Alliance of African American Educators).
What would education for Black children look like over the next 25 years?

- Dr. Darlene V. Willis, Co-Founder & Executive Director, Concerned Parents Alliance/College Bound Programs
