Let's Talk About It

Part 2: What Happens When White Women Cry in Schools?

In November, I wrote an article called Black Educators Share Their Thoughts on What Happens When White Women Cry in Schools.  Since then, I’ve received a number of responses to the content and was notified recently that the article was posted on a colleague’s blog and viewed over 12,000 times.  That’s pretty exciting!

That number of views also suggests that there is an opportunity to keep this conversation going in a way that may help us consider additional ways to adjust so that we can better support Black children in urban areas.  In response, I’d like to interview individuals from each of the target audiences below so that I may write a part 2 to the original article.

The purpose of the part 2 is to 1) create a space to generate authentic perspectives and discussion, 2) consider more deeply how our individual and collective perspectives are impacting our work with Black children in urban areas, 3) recommend changes that will help us to focus more on the needs of Black children in urban schools.

If you fall into the category of one of the targeted audiences and are interested in participating in a 10-15 minute call with me, please inbox me by December 14th, 10pm via LinkedIn or at [email protected]  Feel free to refer others to me as well.

Thank you in advance for your help.  I’m excited about how this work may be helpful to children, families, and schools in our efforts to achieve greater educational equity.


For bookings and inquiries, send an email to [email protected]  I’m more than happy to confer about ways we can partner in achieving meaningful outcomes for students, particularly the ones below, outcomes that align with cultural responsiveness and social justice.
