A Listening Session with Voices from the African-American Community

What works for African-American students works for all students. In the wake of lives lost in the African-American community, League of Education Voters has committed to listen, learn from, and amplify voices of the African-American community because they are at the center of the movement for racial justice.

In this webinar, we have assembled a statewide panel of African-American thought leaders, community leaders, business owners, and educators to share their perspectives on current events and what works to effectively educate African-American students. Our panelists include Debrena Jackson Gandy, national best-selling author, 25-year business owner, keynote speaker, Founder of Seattle’s ELEVATE Empowerment Movement, and former college Trustee; Dr. Thelma Jackson, owner of Foresight Consulting, Former college Trustee, former multi-term school board member and Chair, and has served on Task Forces and Advisory Councils for five Governors of the State of Washington; Dr. Timmie Foster, ABD, Owner of Foster Enterprise, Founder of 100 Leading Ladies of Color, and Program Supervisor Lead for College and Career Readiness at the Washington state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI); Jerrall Haynes, President of the Spokane Public Schools Board; and Rashad Norris, Director of Community Engagement at Highline College.
