MLK Day 2020: An Unequal Education

In Partnership with Repair the World

SUN JAN 19 | 11AM-2PM
FREE!

Education remains the single most important civil rights issue of our time. Even after Brown vs. Board of Education, the Little Rock Nine, national desegregation, and the fading of overt racism from public dialogue, Maryland schools are more segregated now than they have been in decades. This leads to huge achievement gaps, and robbing all students of the experience of interacting with people of different backgrounds and perspectives that is crucial in the real world.

 

Join Repair The World Baltimore at the Creative Alliance to commemorate the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of fighting for racial justice with a documentary screening and discussion about the inequality in Baltimore City Public Schools. View the 2017 film Teach Us All, hear from a panel of local experts about their experience with educational inequity, and pack mid-year school supply restock kits for middle schoolers in West Baltimore.

 

If you would like to contribute to the mid-year school supply restock kits, please bring the following items to donate:

  • pens
  • pencils
  • lined paper
  • pocket folders
  • highlighters
  • small binders

 

*Creative Alliance is accessible; please contact any of the organizers to request accommodations.

*All are welcome, no matter your identity, ability, or faith background.
