Through the early afternoon sessions, following the presentation of the play Queen Calafia: Ruler of California, educators will learn how to infuse California’s African-American experience into classroom environments in order to close the achievement gap. The closing speaker, John William Templeton, discusses his statewide study, Black Heritage as Gap Closer: Educator Capacity to Provide Culturally Responsive Social Studies Teaching in California. A special conference rate for educators is $50 which includes the conference and performance. Visit http://www.californiablackhistory.com for more details.
