Dear TC Community,

The Black Education Research Collective (BERC) is excited to host the October TC Black Community Circle - an affinity space hosted by and for TC faculty, students, staff, and alumni who identify as Black or from the African Diaspora. The community gathering will be held on Thursday, October 22 from 5:30 to 7pm. In this session we will discuss seeking mentoring support and being a mentor to others. We hope the space created for the conversations might foster healing, solidarity, and liberation and trust that all members of the TC community respect the need for and parameters of this affinity space.

Please register here URL https://bit.ly/BCCOctober to receive the Zoom link. You can contact Dr. Phillip A. Smith, BERC Program Director, at [email protected] for more information.

General information

History For almost forty years, IUME has used advocacy, demonstration, evaluation, information dissemination, research and technical assistance to study and seek to improve the quality of life chances through urban and multicultural education . The Institute continues to focus on the implications of population diversity in the context of the demand for pluralistic competencies for the design and management of teaching and learning transactions in schools and other environments for education. Today IUME's objective of fostering the development of communities of color is more critical than ever. Recent efforts and initiatives are focused on increasing university and community partnerships to promote institutional services in the community as well as civic engagement and social responsibility. Presently, IUME is housed in the Theresa Towers at the "Edmund W. Gordon Campus of Teachers College, Columbia University" located at 125th street in Harlem. Its new location in the Harlem community has uniquely positioned the Institute to partner, and foster collaborations with community groups, agencies, and non-profit organizations to address the needs of urban and minority communities of color. The work of the Institute is supported by Teachers College, the College Board, the Educational Testing Service, contracts with governmental agencies, and grants from philanthropic foundations.

In 1919, civil rights activist W. E. B. Du Bois wrote that America’s Black soldiers were returning from WW1 to fight for democracy at home – civil and human rights. What of the Black experience in the Caribbean at this time? Here, a Black Jamaican WW1 veteran recalls the grinding poverty faced by returning Black soldiers in the British Caribbean.

Hello! I'm looking for merit stickers that show non-white youths. Could anyone please help me? I love this: https://www.etsy.com/nl/listing/452816458/african-american-girl-boy-terug-naar?ref=shop_home_active_74 , but they don't ship to Belgium. Is there a bigger brand that might have outlets in, or ships to Europe?
