Bridging the “African Diasporic Divide” in the Digital Age
Digital interfaces are challenging geopolitical boundaries. How can we leverage these digital resources to address “Diaspora Divide” and the ways in which Black people and the African Diaspora remain disconnected? Historically divided by colonialism and slavery, Black diasporic groups have further embraced these multilayered divisions in contemporary times. This panel features scholar-practitioners committed to helping educators learn about diasporic communities. With the help of experts in African diasporic education and international education peers, participants will identify ways to implement and sustain culturally responsive practices in schools and develop strategies for making today’s classrooms inclusive and globally aware spaces.
