The American Association for Teaching & Curriculum

AATC 2019 Birmingham Conference Program

Hello members and friends. In preparation for our upcoming annual meeting in Birmingham, AL, October 3-5, we will be regularly featuring the ideas and works of our invited speakers. First is Dr. Tondra Loder-Jackson.
Dr. Loder-Jackson is a professor of Educational Foundations and African American Studies at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Her work
focuses on the history of civil rights and education in Birmingham, African American education, and urban education. She has written
extensively about these issues and has published a searing exploration of teacher activism during the Civil Rights Movement entitled Schoolhouse Activists: African American Educators and the Long Birmingham Civil Rights Movement, published by State University of New York Press (December 2015).
The link below is to a podcast interview of Dr. Loder-Jackson discussing education and civil rights with the No Jargon Podcast. Please take a moment to listen (approximately 25 minutes) and get a sample of one of the dynamic and powerful speakers keynoting this year’s conference!
Thanks everyone and enjoy. Be sure to go to our Facebook page and/or Twitter feed to post comments! Take care to all of you and I hope the Spring semester ends well.
