Centering Critical Blackness 360°
The systematic critical exploration of blackness and its impact on citizenship and education is important to consider in the United States’ current social climate. This cluster interrogates the ways diasporic bodies navigate change, boundaries, and disrupt systems, particularly through movement and education, from an Afro-feminist and womanist perspective. Arguing the necessity of Afrofuturist creativity and multi-disciplinary collaboration, we realize postcolonial freedom through a liberated mindset. Our exploration will include an educational speaker series, a dance/movement residency/workshops, and experiential components that investigate creative educational spaces in the mid-Atlantic region. Our goal is to convene a broad range of students and create cross-work among people who don’t always connect to each others' learning and to broader societal implications.

The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program invites students to engage with educational studies through a range of roles and purposes: as researchers of the discipline of education; explorers of the interdisciplinary field of educational studies; as facilitators of others' learning inside and outside of schools; and participants in teaching experiences in diverse classroom and community settings. Focused on teaching and learning as social, political, and cultural activities, the Education Program challenges students to explore the relationships among schooling, human development, and society as they gain knowledge and skills of educational theory and practice. Students who complete one of the Education Program options are prepared to collaborate, act, research, reflect, and try to realize beneficial change.
In keeping with the philosophy of the program, each course includes a field experience—from two hours each week to full-time practice teaching—through which students learn to integrate academic and experiential knowledge.
"So, every day, I’m challenging myself, 'What are you doing, bell, for the creation of the beloved community?' Because that’s the underground, local insistence that I be a fundamental part of the world that I’m in."
