Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. & team will deliver a challenging, informative, and action­oriented program filled with interactive, reflective, and practical exercises and activities designed specifically for White Women Who Teach Black Boys. The institute experience will be useful for others with interest in and influence with Black boys.

The majority of public elementary and secondary school teachers in the U.S., Canada, and England are White women while the students of color population in those three nations is increasing. Indeed, the students of color population now outnumbers White students in the U.S.! The research suggests that many teachers are unprepared for and in many ways unfamiliar with the cultural, social, and emotional needs of Black boys.

The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys hopes to also teach three main principles:

  1. How to overcome unconscious bias and forge authentic connections with your Black male students (Understanding);

  2. How to develop learning environments that help Black boys feel a sense of belonging, nurturance, challenge and love at school (Respecting);

  3. How to change school culture so that Black boys can show up in the wholeness of themselves (Connecting).
