    repeat episode:what is An African Centered Education: guest Molefi Kete Asante

    in School

    We will have none other than Dr. Molefi Asante himself discussing Afrocentricity and the work he is doing with the entire Pittsburgh school district. Dr. Asante will help us understand how Afrikan centered schools differ from other public schools and why so many Afrikan scholars are finding success with this culturally based teaching.
    Dr Molefi Asante, the Father of Afrocentricity states, in his paper Afrocentricity, " ....Afrocentricity becomes a revolutionary idea because it studies ideas, concepts, events, personalities, and political and economic processes from a standpoint of black people as subjects and not as objects, basing all knowledge on the authentic interrogation of location."  He continued, "One of the key assumptions of the Afrocentrist is that all relationships are based on centers and margins and the distances from either the center or the margin. When black people view themselves as centered and central in their own history then they see themselves as agents, actors, and participants rather than as marginals on the periphery of political or economic experience." On this episode of "The Mind Beneath the School," we will look at this ideology and why this is the only valid way of teaching Afrikan children born in America and the Afrikan diasporic.  I know you don't want to miss this.

    November 2017 Voices from the Field speaker spotlight interview. Dr. Joy Peyton

    in Higher Education

    Many of us are interested in and strive for peaceful engagement in our families, communities, schools, and nation, and there are strong calls for peace within our education community (e.g., Oxford, 2013; The Language of Peace: Communicating to Create Harmony) and in international engagement initiatives (e.g., Gopin, 2016; Healing the Heart of Conflict). However, understandings about ways to live in peace often remain abstract, and the language that we observe in politics, the media, and even in education (and that we use ourselves) is often filled with judgments, labels, and blame, and we increasingly see misunderstandings and division across, and even within, the groups that we care about and engage with. The goals of this talk are to review key principles and components of nonviolent communication, which teachers can use with learners and colleagues and in their classes, and all of us can use in our daily lives. These include ways to Observe, express our own Feelings, understand our Needs, and make Requests.Many of us are interested in and strive for peaceful engagement in our families, communities, schools, and nation, and there are strong calls for peace within our education community (e.g., Oxford, 2013; The Language of Peace: Communicating to Create Harmony) and in international engagement initiatives (e.g., Gopin, 2016; Healing the Heart of Conflict).
