David Stovall to Speak at Western Washington University on “Justice Does Not Happen in a Vacuum: Race, Rights and the Possibility of Now”

As part of the Diversity Teach-Ins at Western Washington University, David Stovall will be speaking on “Justice Does not Happen in a Vacuum: Race, Rights and the Possibility of Now.”   The event will take place on March 8th in Fraser 102, 4-6pm, on the Western campus.     
 David Omotoso Stovall, Ph.D., is a professor of Educational Policy Studies and African-American Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. 

His talk is entitled, “Justice Does Not Happen in a Vacuum:  Race, Rights and the Possibility of Now.” He will be discussing state-sanctioned violence against Black communities (and other communities of color), situating contemporary youth movements within a context of community resistance to systems of racialized oppression and violence, ultimately urging educators and community leaders alike to move beyond tough talk.

The Journal of Educational Controversy is co-sponsoring the event along with the Woodring College of Education, Center for Education, Equity and Diversity, Education and Social Justice Minor, Associated Students Social Issues Resource Center, Ethnic Student Center, Diversity Fund, Office of the Provost, Academic Affairs, WCE Equity and Diversity Committee.

Watch for the journal’s next call for papers on “Black Lives Matter and the Education Industrial Complex.”
