Marimba Milliones, CEO of the Hill Community Development Corporation in Pittsburgh, joins Empowered Educators to revisit our core themes of the Politics of Erasure and Invisibility as seen through the monuments that exist in Pittsburgh. Where is the monumental evidence of Black contributions to Pittsburgh? Beyond Roberto Clemente and sports?

This session’s practice will include a talk on the Dismantling and Repurposing of Monuments as well as hands-on activities and writing exercises.

The Empowered Educators Series provides a forum for teachers, educators, administrators, counselors, and the like to think critically and openly discuss topics of race, equity, bias, and pedagogy. Empowered Educators Series promotes ongoing learning, partnerships with supporting organizations, and community building among teachers.

Carnegie Museum of Art, Center for Urban Education, Western Pennsylvania Writing Project, and Remake Learning have joined together to support educators in their approaches and abilities to facilitate thoughtful discussions about race in the classroom.

A link to Zoom will be shared the day-of the session.

This series is fully supported by the Grable Foundation and is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
