CUE summer forum to focus on Black educational movements

The annual Center for Urban Education Summer Education Forum (CUESEF) will examine the histories of Black educational movements in the U.S.

The event, “Forging Futures Through Black Educational Histories,” will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 16 to 19. 

The Heinz Endowments is cosponsoring the event, which will feature historian dialogues, study groups and webinars.

Participants can expect to investigate past Black educational movements and knowledge traditions in the U.S. and how they inform current educational practices. This information is expected to help encourage thinking about rectifying current educational injustice and inequity issues.

The event also will feature art from Mikael Owunna, a queer Nigerian-Swedish American photographer and engineer based in Pittsburgh, whose work examines themes of Blackness and African cosmologies.

For more information and to register for the event, visit the CUESEF website.
