Standards

This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.

In this webinar, you will dive into the works of W.E.B. Du Bois, Resmaa Manekem, and Paulo Friere to explore Black Trauma.

Description

This webinar presents different ways to celebrate and uplift what is happening in the Black community. Black success (like lots of successes) has often been pigeon-holed to look a particular way. This webinar hopes to demonstrate the spectrums of success for Black (and all) folks from an economic and financial perspective. Pushing the status-quo notions and idealism of middle America, this webinar challenges participants to see Black success to be as diverse and unique as the people. We will explore what folks are currently doing to continue the push of Black excellence and think about how Black success can look in the future.
