The Urban Education Collaborative at UNC Charlotte is pleased to continue our Urban Education Collaborative Distinguished Lecture Series.  This Distinguished Lecture Series takes place each semester to enhance our academic community on key issues in the field of urban education.

We are partnering with the Department of Reading and Elementary Education to welcome H. Richard Milner IV, Ph.D. as our guest lecturer for the Spring 2016 semester.  The title of his talk will be "Rac(e)ing to Class: We are in this Together!".  Educators often talk about poverty when discussing the failures of our education system in the United States of American, yet they tend to shy away from conversations around race. Milner argues that honest discourse about race and racism is essential for teaching practices that are adequate for all students. In this talk, Milner examines pervasive raced structural and social policies that shape educators’ mindsets, considers how we can support instructional practices that address race and poverty in meaningful ways, and shares what “successful” schools and districts do to meet the needs of underserved students.

H. Richard Milner IV (also known as Rich) is Helen Faison Endowed Professor of Urban Education, Professor of Education, Professor of Sociology (by courtesy), Professor of Social Work (by courtesy), and Professor of Africana Studies (by courtesy) as well as Director of the Center for Urban Education at the University of Pittsburgh. His research, teaching and policy interests concern urban education, teacher education, African American literature, and the sociology of education.  Previously, Professor Milner was on faculty at Vanderbilt University, where he became the first Black person to earn tenure and promotion in Vanderbilt’s College of Education, Peabody College. Professor Milner’s research examines practices and policies that support teacher effectiveness in urban schools.   Professor Milner’s work has appeared in numerous journals, and he has published six books. His most recent books, published by Harvard Education Press are: Start where you are but don’t stay there: Understanding diversity, opportunity gaps, and teaching in today’s classrooms (2010) and Rac(e)ing to class: Confronting poverty and race in schools and classrooms (2015).
