The Necessity of Black Educational Space
Research suggests that for Black students in K-12, Black-led educational spaces equip them with education to succeed in society (Andrews, 2014). Based on focus groups and interviews with Black Canadian university students, this presentation extends the literature arguing that Black-led educational spaces may serve as a crucial tool for the educational and professional success of Black post-secondary students. It also argues that Black community organizations remain a venue for cultivating these spaces.
