Intelligogy The Podcast Season 4, Episode 7: Equity Talk Tuesday

Traci Browder | @tracibrowder
January 15,  2021

The 1st episode in this new series, Equity Talk Tuesday, is emotional, powerful, and extremely painful.

Traci challenges us by asking us to think about the fire we had after George Floyd’s death.

She helps us to understand that the one, tiny thing that most educators flooded social media with as a resolution is not the answer to addressing equity in schools. We go on an intimate journey into Traci’s hometown where she shows us real examples of the disparity that exists not only in education, but in our communities, in the lives of families in impoverished communities. We can do better.

The end of the this episode is difficult on so many levels.

This is an episode to be shared widely.

Traci’s hope is to help us begin to or continue to understand the depth of the pain and the need for the consistent fight for equity, social justice, and antiracism advocacy.

Make sure you are in a quiet place with no distractions to fully engage with this painful episode.

Howdy, Edufriends! I am a lover of people and relationships. I’ve been teaching for more than 16 years. My happy places have been reading specialist, instructional coach, mentor, and a 3rd grade and Kindergarten teacher. My classroom is a live learning lab hosting student teachers, teachers who want to learn how to have more engagement in their classrooms, and administrators for other schools often pop in. I am most passionate about igniting the spark in adults and helping children believe in themselves. Perhaps oddly interesting, I have a unique love for animals that includes previously having owned a boa constrictor and having shown pure-bred wolves at wolf shows. I should have said unique love for exotic animals!
