Dr. Henfield will discuss his unapologetic approach to school-and community-based research and the direct/indirect implications of this work for those of us in higher education settings. His community engagement research with schools (e.g., Atlanta Public School District, Baltimore City Public School District, Chicago Public Schools, Oakland Unified School District, San Francisco Unified School District, and more) is a hallmark of his scholarship. He will address the ways his scholarly approach is vital to an unapologetic and racially just approach to research and supporting the next generation of racial justice scholars.
This webinar series engages audiences in thinking about and reflecting on what it means to conduct educational research from a standpoint that honors Black lives in the research process, while also disrupting racism and white supremacy. Given the unprecedented moment we are all experiencing, we are committed to shifting the landscape of qualitative research and using this research to shift our sociopolitical context toward racial equity and justice.
