Professor Horsford will discuss key themes from her book “Learning in a Burning House”, which documents the negative consequences of school desegregation for Black communities in the U.S. and their continued relevance amid widening social inequality and political polarization. Focusing on what Dr. King described as the triple evils of poverty, racism, and war, Horsford presents new insights into the future of Black education and a vision for education leadership that does more than “manage” schools and their diversity, but rather is grounded in a moral activist vision of equal education through a cross-racial commitment to racial literacy, realism, reconstruction, and reconciliation in schools and society.
