This February, we honor Black History Month and celebrate the many trailblazing Black leaders and practitioners who have taken the stage at SXSW EDU.
We’ve created a video playlist, as well as a reading list, featuring previous speakers as we reflect on their powerful messages and continue to be inspired by their work in our daily endeavors to improve the future of education.
Watch videos featuring sessions including Empathy in Equity, Reconstruction: America After the Civil War, From HBCU to PhD: Social Capital & Student Success, and WE Over Me: From College to Movement.
