IJHRE Issue 5 – HRE and Black Liberation

Situating Black activism and movement building in its historical context, this special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights Education (IJHRE) features articles, essays, commentaries, and book reviews that put the longstanding call for Black lives to matter and the quest for Black liberation in conversation with human rights education as a field of scholarship and practice.

The IJHRE is an independent, double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal dedicated to the examination of the theory, philosophy, research, and praxis central to the field of human rights education. This journal seeks to be a central location for critical thought in the field as it continues to expand.

Black Lives Matter at School

Mark your calendars! The Black Lives Matter at School week of action will be held from February 4-8, 2019.

Black Lives Matter At School is a national committee of educators organizing for racial justice in education.  BLM at School encourage all educators, parents, students, unions, and community organizations to join the annual week of action during the first week of February each year.

There are many ways to participate in Black Lives Matter at School week. Some educators teach BLM lessons every day of the week, wear their Black Lives Matter At School t-shirt, organize after-school rallies, facilitate their students entering the creative challenge, develop curriculum, post on social media, and rally at the school board meeting. One easy way for everyone to participate is to sign the petition endorsing the week of action

The important thing is that you act in some way to join this movement to bring down the structures of anti-Blackness in education and affirm the lives of Black students in your classroom. 

Email BlackLivesMatterAtSchool If you or your organization would like to support or endorse the week of action.
