The Stories We Tell: Transforming Narratives About Other People’s Children

March 20, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join the Center for Urban Education for the spring 2018 edition of #CUEtalks when we welcome Dr. Lisa Delpit from Southern University. In this talk, Dr. Delpit addresses how the stories our country has told us about certain people distort our perceptions and create self-fulfilling stereotypes of low performance. If we change our stories, we can both change the ways we think about children and the ways they think about themselves.
