Brown Girls Dreaming: Adolescent Black Girls' Futuremaking
This NWP Radio CoLab features the authors of our March reading for LEARN: Marginal Syllabus. Jennifer Turner and Autumn Griffin, two Black woman literacy scholars, discuss their article and their work learning alongside two adolescents, Tamika and Malia, over a six-year period.
This is the first month’s reading from the LEARN Marginal Syllabus, Spring 2021 co-developed with the National Writing Project (NWP) and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) with support from Hypothesis. Each month, March through June, we will invite educators to collaboratively read and discuss an article published by NCTE that investigates the intersection of literacy and equity. Each reading with related author discussion will go “live” on the first Monday of the month.
