Join us on Tuesday Oct. 19 at 1 pm when we present: John B. King Jr. – “Why Critical Race Theory is Considered to be a Threat to Democracy.”
Lifelong educator, John King, will discuss education in the COVID era and how to stand up to far-right attacks on education surrounding Critical Race Theory. He credits public school teachers for preventing his life from going off the rails, even after being expelled from high school.
Currently a candidate for Governor of Maryland, he leads an education civil rights organization and is also a professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. He served as President Obama’s U.S. Secretary of Education and was the first Afro-Latino to hold that important office.
