Ring the Alarm: Black Teachers Speak – COVID-10 The Facts – Webinar
May 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On this webinar you will hear from the voices of Black teachers in the U.S. on the frontlines of this COVID-19 crisis. They will be talking about the impact of school closures on our children and community, inequality in schools, distance learning and the digital divide, the economic implications of COVID-19 and what we all can do to promote change.
The Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine, Morehouse College International Comparative Labor Studies and the Health Equity Cypher have come together to holistically put a name, face and a narrative to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the Black community, launching the Ring the Alarm Series.
In New York City alone between March 16 and April 10, 2020 fifty New York educators (among them 21 teachers, 22 paraprofessionals, two administrators, and a cafeteria workers) who dedicated their careers to inspiring and educating children have died from COVID-19, according to the city’s Department of Education.
Black teachers matter. In New York City almost 75 percent of public school students are Black and Latinx. This pandemic is affecting our community in a profound way.
We need to hear from OUR experts from across the country and discuss what’s happening, why it is happening, and share best practices and possible solutions in labor and health to end this pandemic and prepare for our future.
This panel will be moderated by Dr. L. Toni Lewis.
