UCI School of Education Assistant Professor Adriana Villavicencio will present findings from her upcoming book, Am I My Brother’s Keeper?, which chronicles a four-year study focused on improving the educational outcomes of 15,000 Black and Latinx males in New York City public high schools. Her presentation will be followed by a Q&A with Douglas M. Haynes, Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at UCI. Through the discussion and Q&A, Villavicencio will cover what worked, what didn’t, and what we can learn from the experience. As sustained protests across the United States call attention to the tragic legacy of systemic racism, this event will highlight concrete steps that districts, schools, and educators can take to confront racism and support young people of color.
