Wilson and Wood are also member of EDS at Union’s Expanding the Moral Imaginary Through Film cohort. In this conversation, they will discuss the implications of banning the Black experience and the story of race from schools on the education and development of Black children. They will examine the historical and contemporary role of the Black press and Black church in supplementing education for young people in Black communities. Additionally, the conversation will reflect on representation today in film and popular culture and its impact on shaping societal perceptions and attitudes towards Black individuals and communities.
EDS at Union’s Facebook Live series Just Conversations with Kelly Brown Douglas explores the racialized inequities intrinsic to our nation and our collective responsibility to create a more just future.
These 30-minute conversations featured on the EDS at Union Facebook page will invite activists and religious, political, and thought leaders to discuss their work being champions for justice. Videos are also available on the Union YouTube Page.
