As the title of this presentation indicates, Black females are often 'blacked out' and 'whited out'. Blacked out: The experiences of Black males in schools and the larger society get a great deal of attention relative to ongoing injustices. In sharing these important experiences, scholars may ignore the realities of Black females, be they like or different from Black males. Whited out: Similarly, the experiences of Black females are frequently discounted and ignored when it comes to White females. The panel of Black female guest speakers share some of their experiences as Black girls in school and then share their work (e.g., research, programs, projects, resources, strategies) addressing both voids in the spirit of advocating for Black females in P-12 and higher education.
From instructors and speakers, participants will gain a better and deeper understanding of how Black females are similar to and different from: (a) White females and (b) Black males, and relevant supports and resources.
