The University of Wisconsin - Madison Professional Learning and Community Education (PLACE) will host the Black History Education Conference on February 19-20, a culturally relevant professional development opportunity for educators in Wisconsin and across the country. This year’s conference will promote effective “policies, practices, programs, and procedures that bolster higher achievement for those underserved in school systems and communities.” State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor will kick off the conference with the welcome address.
Several sessions will be offered, including “Celebrating Black Scientists with PBS Wisconsin,” a special viewing of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities documentary Tell Them We Are Rising, and much more.
There are a limited number of scholarships available for those with financial need. For more information, including how to register, visit the UW - Madison Black History Education Conference web page.
