Black History Education Conference: Bringing the Gifts that My Ancestors Gave

Professional Development

The Bringing the Gifts that My Ancestors Gave: Black History Education Conference is intended to provide a venue where community members from across the state will be able to share policies, practices and procedures that have proven effective in promoting high levels of achievement for those often under served in our school systems. Through a variety of workshop sessions, national consultants, performances, videos, resources, networking opportunities and much more, participants will be immersed in professional development that strengthens their skills by sharing around innovative instructional and learning strategies that have proven successful in motivating African American youth and enhancing their minds, bodies and spirits.

This conference will focus on 22 evidence supported interventions associated with Black students' educational outcomes found from systematic review of research conducted by The Midwest Achievement Gap Research Alliance, along with the conference organizer and other partners including researchers, policymakers and practitioners who share an interest in improving educational outcomes for Black students.
