In Conversation with Christopher Emdin, Omari Hardwick, and Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz

New York Times best-selling author Dr. Christopher Emdin joins us again this winter to talk about his new book Ratchedemic: Reimagining Academic Success and what it illustrates about Radical Welcoming. Chris advocates for learning spaces that allow students to share academic successes without sacrificing their identities. Chris will explore this novel approach in conversation with award-winning actor, multi-disciplinary artist, and activist Omari Hardwick (co-star of television's Power); and his colleague, award-winning educator Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz, Associate Professor of English Education at Teachers College, Columbia University and author of Advancing Racial Literacies in Teacher Education: Activism for Equity in Digital Spaces.
