Title: Imagine Me... Being Me and Free, Academically

Description: While there are discipline disparity reform efforts to decrease the disparities between white and black boys, Black girls are the most at-risk student group in the United States. Black girls’ discipline rates are not far behind the nation's lead, Black boys. What should be looked at as giddy and hyper behavior in an adolescent or teen girl is labeled as suspicious, disrespectful, and unruly when coming from Black female students. Understanding that Black girls are stamped by educators with biased viewpoints of their behavior, which affects the mental health and academic growth of Black female students, will open the conversation as to how to navigate the system and create a space within their current and future learning communities. This workshop will address some of Black girls' myths about education and discipline and create a space to release past experiences and embrace individual corks as they learn to be “Me and Free, academically.”

Title: Imagine Me…Beyond What You Can See

Description: Your academic success should be based on your abilities toward possibilities not your outward appearance. Too often educators have the tendency to decide what you can do without working on relationships to understand all that you bring into the classroom. Participants will create a cube which represents their multifaceted social identities that are part of their academic success. Young women will use the cube to (re)write a short story (poem) about who they are, not just what they look to be. Since there is power in numbers, they will use their individual story to build a collective voice of what young women of color can be. The cube can serve as an empowerment reminder that they have permission to show up in all academic spaces with each part of who they say they are versus what the world deems them to be.
