Video: Elevating Black Student Voices
TCU’s College of Education hosted a Facebook live chat about how the college, TCU, K-12 schools and higher education institutions broadly can welcome and accept Black students and elevate their voices. The panel, moderated by M. Francyne Huckaby, associate dean of the TCU School of Interdisciplinary Studies and professor of curriculum studies, included:
- Leslie Ekpe, second year doctoral student in the Higher Educational Leadership program at TCU
- Dr. Jason K. Wallace ’09 M.Ed. ’10, higher education researcher and practitioner from Fort Worth, Texas and an Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the School of Education at The University of Southern Mississippi
- Shanel Jones M.Ed. ’16, Lower School Assistant Division Head at All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth. She earned her Master of Education in Educational Leadership from TCU, participating in the Principal Leadership Fellows Program
During the discussion, panelists answered questions about positive and negative aspects of their experiences at TCU, what educators at TCU and more broadly can do to create a sense of belonging for Black students, and how they advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion in their current roles as students, administrators and educators.
