Moore Leads Workshop and Presents Research

In late October, Professor Heather Moore led a workshop on race and racism as part of the Cultural Competency Institute at SUNY Fredonia. Professor Moore also presented original research at the American Educational Studies Association national conference. Her paper was titled, “Re-reading Dope: Re-fashioning Gifted Black Male Student Status in Mainstream American Film.”

Charles Ross ’20 (a community & justice studies major and education studies minor) presented with Professor Heather Moore at the American Educational Studies Association annual meeting. Charles’ paper was titled, “Straight Outta Ann Arbor: A Critical Analysis of the Multifaceted Identities of Black Male Student Athletes.” Ross was one of few undergraduate students who presented at this professional conference. His paper will be submitted for publication in an upcoming edited book collection.
