The #50State Conversation is HERE!

Our 50 State Conversation about segregation and educational inequality is here! Join us on May 17 (the anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education) at 8pm ET. Hosted by NCSD, in collaboration with Epic Theatre Ensemble and Dodd Human Rights Impact (UCONN). If you haven’t had a chance to see Nothing About Us, we’ll be screening that at 7:15pm ET on May 17th. NOTHING ABOUT US is a rigorous, passionate and hilarious exploration of educational segregation written and performed by those most affected and least consulted: NYC Public High School students. What does separate but equal mean to us today? Running time: 30 minutes.

Agenda (8pm ET):
-Roll Call and video of student work from Boston, MA; Boise, ID; Tukwila, WA; Cincinnati, OH
-Panel discussion with Epic Theatre students (Hailey Petrus, Luan Taveras, Lizette Padua)
-Presentations from Washington, DC and Montana
-Remarks from Donna Harris-Aikens (Senior Advisor for Policy and Planning, U.S. Dep’t of Education)
-Action steps and wrap-up
