Reading, Writing, and Racism: Disrupting Whiteness in Teacher Education and in the Classroom

Join NYCoRE as we celebrate Dr. Bree Picower’s new book, Reading, Writing, and Racism: Disrupting Whiteness in Teacher Education and in the Classroom. The event will center around a conversation between NYCoRE founder, Dr. Ariana Mangual and former long-time core member Dr. Bree Picower.

Dr. Bree Picower is an Associate Professor at Montclair State University in the College of Education and Human Development. She is the Co-Director of the Urban Teacher Residency, Newark Teacher Project and the Critical Urban Education Speaker Series with Dr. Tanya Maloney at MSU. Her newest book, Reading, Writing and Racism, is an unflinching examination of recent examples of viral racist curriculum and what it means for our educational institutions to take responsibility for addressing teachers’ understandings of race.

Dr. Ariana Mangual Figueroa is an Associate Professor of Urban Education at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her ethnographic research seeks to understand the ways in which the lives of children and adults in mixed-status families are shaped by citizenship status. Prior to obtaining her Ph.D., she taught English as a Second Language and Spanish in public schools in the Bronx and Brooklyn and worked to co-found the New York Collective of Radical Educators (NYCoRE).

This virtual event will be on Friday, February 26th from 5-6:30 pm. RSVP here for the link.
