Abolitionist Teaching for Education Justice
Wednesday, March 23, 2022
5:00-6:30 pm EST
Dr. Bettina L. Love
Tisch Fellow, Teachers College 2021-2022
Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia
DR. BETTINA L. LOVE is an award-winning author and the Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia. Her writing, research, teaching, and educational advocacy work meet at the intersection of education reform, anti-racism, carceral studies, abolition, and Black joy. The aim of her scholarship is twofold: firstly, to advance how the field of education understands and critiques the systemic and structural racism of public education within the U.S.; and secondly, to advocate for abolitionist approaches in the field of education that seek new possibilities for educational justice. In the pursuit of making her scholarship a reality, she works with activists, communities, youth, families, and school districts to build communal, civically-engaged schools rooted in the aspirations of abolitionist strategies that love and affirm Black and Brown children.
