An uninhibited, unfiltered, uncensored and unconventional conversation about an educational issue that we care too much about to simply objectify with objective research. (Facilitated by the Journal of Negro Education Editors - Ivory A. Toldson (Editor-in-Chief), Donna Ford, Chance Lewis, Yolanda Sealey Ruiz)

This year our featured griot will be Dr. J. LUKE WOOD, who will give a candid account of his personal and professional journey, which led to seminal works such as Black Minds Matter

UnAERA is an unscripted, uninhibited, uncensored and unconventional conversation about educational issues often dismissed, neglected, or shunned in mainstream research. It provides a safe space for accomplished scholars to candidly and subjectively discuss their efforts to unmask the harsh realities of educational inequalities and race-based injustices plaguing the educational system. Invited scholars are encouraged to discuss their journey in developing their scholarship and the obstacles encountered to present research that is relevant, visible, and respected in a field that often turns a blind eye and demonstrates indifference to educational issues that ignite the scholars’ greatest passion.
