The Center for Research and Mentoring of Black Male Students and Teachers (CRM-BMST) at Bowie State University hosts the annual Black Male Teacher Speaker Series program.
The theme for this year’s program is Black Male Educator Pedagogical Excellence. It will feature a panel of Black men who have earned the Teacher of the Year’s professional award for their school district and/or Maryland. The Black male educators will engage in discussion about their education and professional experiences and pedagogy.
This panel will challenge Black male educators’ stereotypical portrayals as disciplinarians and role models without considering their pedagogy, content knowledge, and meaningful relationships with students. The program will honor the Black men with the Center’s Black Male Educator Pedagogical Excellence award.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Keisha McIntosh Allen, Assistant Professor, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Faculty Fellow/Leadership Team member in the Center of Research and Mentoring of Black Male Students and Teachers. Dr. Allen’s research focuses on the humanizing pedagogy of Black teachers.
The program will feature a Black male teacher research spotlight from Dr. Ramon Goings, Assistant Professor, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Faculty Fellow/Leadership Team member in the Center of Research and Mentoring of Black Male Students and Teachers. Dr. Goings’ research interests are centered on exploring the academic and social experiences of gifted/high-achieving Black males PK-PhD, diversifying the teacher and school leader workforce, and investigating the contributions of historically Black colleges and universities.
The speaker series seeks to bridge research, theory, and practice related to Black male educators.
Funding from the University System of Maryland and Bowie State University supports the CRM-BMST and the Black Male Teacher Speaker Series.
