Join us Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 8 AM - 4 PM for a day of restorative dialogue focused on topics central to the education and critical mentorship of Youth of Color.  This year’s summit will amplify and highlight the voices, experiences, and leadership of Black Girls, as they cultivate Black Joy, highlight anti-racist pedagogies, and guide us to re(imagine) schools as spaces where they and their BIPOC peers thrive!
