Don’t Let Black Educators

Become Black History

The CTU Speaks! podcast is recording a special Black History Month panel on the disappearance of Black educators—in Chicago and across the country—and what teachers unions and community allies can do to reverse the trend.

Hosted by Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson and featuring rank-and-file CTU members, Dyett hunger striker Monique Redeax-Smith and writer/activist/organizer Charles Preston, the panel will discuss issues facing Black educators in schools today, and what is lost when Black teachers become Black history. You won’t want to miss this!

CTU Speaks! co-hosts Andrea Parker and Jim Staros will kick off the night! Never miss an episode—subscribe today on your favorite podcasting platform. The event will also be taped and later released in podcast form.

Cocktails will be served from 5-6 p.m.; panel taping is from 6-8 p.m.
