Robert P. Robinson is an assistant professor in the SEEK Program at John Jay College and an induction mentor at Teachers College, Columbia University. Prior to higher education, he was a K-12 educator and mentor for 11 years. His broad research and teaching focus on Black education history, history of U.S. education, curriculum studies, higher education mentorship and advising, and the Black Freedom Movement. In this workshop we’ll discuss the relationship between education and justice. More specifically we will discuss helping students recall, analyze and situate their educational journeys with an awareness of who they are, what they want and how they wish to think of their educational pathways as political liberatory acts. This workshop is open to ALL future and current educators and the public.
