Wilmer Leon's guests were two educators who talked about their experiences of teaching Black children in the school system.
Some of their experiences underline what I keep saying: we need to learn from each other internationally. For example, one of the guests talked about the fact that he went into teaching Special Education, only to find out that a lot of Black children are being put into that category.
The same thing happened here in the UK in the 1960s and 70s, when Black children were often labelled "educationally sub-normal". Nowadays, exclusions are often used to deny our children an education.
Another point the guests made was that Black boys are often being raised by women, and they come into the classroom to find themselves being taught by women. So where do they learn to be men? Where are their male role models?
The presenter also makes the point that HBCUs do not teach their students some crucial Black literature. You can graduate from Harvard without having read Carter G. Woodson's The Miseducation of the Negro or Ivan van Sertima's They Came before Columbus.
