Awardees: Yasmene Mumby (HGSE), Bonnie Lo (HGSE), and Charisse Taylor (HGSE)

Summary: Youth of color all over the nation do not have access to equitable opportunities for culturally affirming learning where their stories and voices can be amplified in creative ways. Educators also lack the supports to build and grow in their capacity to create, collect, and collaborate to strengthen culturally affirming teaching and learning.  Awardees collaborate with educators and their students to create culturally affirming literary, audio, & visual content and curriculum
