The Carnegie Museum of Art’s Empowered Educators Series is teaming up with Remake Learning Meetups for a very special evening with Jawanza K. Rand.

Race and social justice confront us in the news daily. 20/20: The Studio Museum in Harlem and Carnegie Museum of Art offers a metaphoric picture of America by mapping the many ways in which artists respond to the social and political conditions that shape our lives. But how do educators enter into this conversation? How does art support relevant, engaging, and equitable learning in classrooms? This Meetup will outline tools for white teachers to start and have successful conversations about race, based on research currently underway at the Center for Urban Education, University of Pittsburgh. It is also one of the last opportunities to tour “The Most Important Art Show in America,” before it closes in December.
