Black Liberation Through Education: The Fight Continues

In this throwback episode from the live-streaming days of Building the Black Educator Pipeline, host Shayna Terrell was joined by Charlie Cobb Jr, Dr. Zoharah Simmons, and Dr. Charles Payne, to discuss liberatory education.

As members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), they were around for the origins of Freedom Schools, which combined culturally relevant practices, and Black history and promoted Afro-centric education. 

In this episode, the guests discussed applying the principles of SNCC Freedom Schools to modern education and the impact of Black Teachers on all students. They also covered the history of Black education after Brown v. Board, the current political climate surrounding education, and more.
