On Wednesday, October 3, Harvard Associate Professor of Education Meira Levinson will discuss her recent book, No Citizen Left Behind, with the Chicago community.
While teaching at an all-Black middle school in Atlanta, Levinson realized that her students’ individual self-improvement would not necessarily enable them to overcome their historical marginalization. In order to overcome their civic empowerment gap, students must learn how to reshape power relationships through public, political, and civic action.
From 5:00 – 7:00 pm, Levinson will talk about themes from her book and offer her vision for reforming civic education in America.
The event is free and open to the public. Books are available for purchase and signing by the author.
The Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Spencer Foundation, and the Mikva Challenge are pleased to sponsor this author event.
