Guests: Dr. Alicia Moore and Dr. Walter Greason

Dr. Alicia Moore, Dr. Walter Greason, and Founder of the Karson Institute, Dr. Karysona "Kaye" Wise Whitehead, will take on the conversation of critical race theory and culturally responsive teaching. Listeners will be able to engage with these scholars and grasp an understanding of the differences and interconnectedness between critical race theory and culturally responsive teaching within education. There will be time allocated for Q&A so listeners can get answers to the questions most important to them surrounding these topics.
