Ivory Toldson Author Talk

  • Eaton Workshop 1201 K Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

Event Details

What if everything you thought you knew about educating Black children was based on BS (bad stats)? We often hear things like, “Black boys are a dying breed,” “There are more Black men in prison than college,” “Black children fail because single mothers raise them,” and “Black students don’t read.” In No BS (Bad Stats): Black People Need People Who Believe in Black People Enough Not to Believe Every Bad Thing They Hear about Black People, Toldson uses data analysis, anecdotes, and powerful commentary to dispel common myths and challenge conventional beliefs about educating Black children.

Ivory A. Toldson is a professor of Counseling Psychology at Howard University, the president of Quality Education for Minorities, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Negro Education, and executive editor of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Research, published by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. He recently appeared on Democracy Now to discuss the college cheating and bribery scandal.

The book will be available for purchase and signing. Free and open to the public. 

This is event is co-sponsored by Teaching for Change and Eaton Workshop.

ASL interpretation will be available.
