I have included the publicly streamed lecture below featuring our guests Ryan J. Smith (Executive Director, Education Trust-West), S. Lee Merritt (prominent Civil Rights Attorney), and Patrisse Cullors (Co-Founded, Black Lives Matter). There is also a brief overview of the course. https://proxy.qualtrics.com/proxy/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu.be%2FreeuTbZgK8o%3Ft&token=0k%2FWIdt15krxN7%2ByMyQ8ayxoNor7%2FNvTJhQ2TGQO8AQ%3D=9m26s I have also included the private lecture that took place after the public stream ended. This lecture focuses on policing and schooling for Black boys and men. In this lecture, we draw comparisons between issues facing Black Lives and demonstrate how those issues manifest for Black Minds. https://proxy.qualtrics.com/proxy/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch&token=K01q3PtLmps%2FccMESdSHpocZgndPJMjCb%2BzjuVDGjOQ%3D?v=BRy5uTBWJ18 #BlackMindsMatter, Dr. Luke Wood

This was a really good follow up article. Dr. Wood's approach to addressing systemic inequities in such a nuanced way is so critical in producing more equitable outcomes for traditionally marginalized student populations.
