After Marcelle Haddix keynote at the Literacy Research Association I examined my last theory of change for a #literacies grant and realized I did not cite one scholar of color.
I spent the intersession learning and reading about scholars of color in the field of education. While it is a risk of pithy appropriation, rather than deep understanding, decided to do a #100DaysOfQuotesOfColor.
Every day I share a quote from someone I am learning about with an image from an artist who support the Commons.
Long term I am doing a dive into the work of Maisha Winn, @David E. Kirkland, and others to find the stories of reading and writing that better represent the world than my last attempt:
I love Dewey and Jim Gee but they both have enough citations. there are tangential fields in critical race theory, art history, AND scholars in my own field whose work I and other have ignored for too long.
