Join us for CU Boulder’s Ed Talks, a series of short, engaging talks that address some of today’s most pressing issues in education and beyond. We will focus on the ongoing legacies of changemakers fighting for civil rights and how we can bring the lessons of the past into our understanding of education today.
We will learn from the deeply personal experiences of community leaders navigating complex struggles for civil rights in the past and present — from uncovering the long-standing but lesser-known history of Mexican Americans’ battle against school segregation to race relations in a rural community and advocating for bilingual learners. Exploring contemporary work that continues the legacy of the freedom fighters of the civil rights movement, the talks explore what it means to continue the fight for justice today.
The Spring 2023 Ed Talks event will be held at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, and the event is free and open to the public but tickets are required.
