It is impossible to detach the fight for equity in education, and in gifted education in particular, from the broader struggle for racial justice in this country. At a time when racial tensions are flaring up nationally at a level unseen in generations, one thing is abundantly clear: racism cannot, and will not be wiped out without active involvement from white people committed to the cause.

After this session, you will have the practical tools needed to transform from a mere ally to a true co-conspirator in the fight against racism.
