Austin College (Sherman, TX), Centenary College of Louisiana (Shreveport, LA), and Huston-Tillotson University (Austin, TX)

Austin College, Huston-Tillotson University, and Centenary College of Louisiana are focusing on issues of the teaching and learning about the legacies of slavery. Building intra- and inter-institutional collaborations, as well as dynamic community engagement with public school systems, the three institutions will share their experiences and offer insights into this process at the class, curricular, institutional, and interdisciplinary levels within the contested landscape of race and education today. Representatives from Austin College will consider the intersection between private colleges and  public education in the context of their pedagogical workshops on histories of racial violence and resistance; from Huston-Tillotson University will discuss the development of an environmental justice curriculum and its ties to community; and from Centenary College will examine issues of race and place-based learning in the context of teaching bioethics.
