EVENT DATE: May 20, 2016

THE STORY:

William Jackson is the founder of Village Of Wisdom, an organization that is mobilizing a nationwide movement of families to discover, celebrate, and protect the Black Genius of children. At the age of 24, William became the highest performing science teacher in his district, but yearned to expand his impact on youth of color. Consequently, he decided to pursue a PhD in Education from the University of North Carolina. While at UNC, William attracted the attention of social change consulting firm Frontline Solutions to design learning environments for both school-age and professional audiences. William has been awarded the Echoing Green, Camelback Ventures, and Education Pioneer Fellowships.

Village of Wisdom (VOW), works with families to build and protect the self-esteem and self-image of Black children from the harmful effects of implicit racial bias in education. By increasing Black families access to both culturally competent mental health support and equitable education services, VOW utilizes capacity building projects to develop community informed knowledge with the goal of dramatically shifting systems to provide more culturally appropriate resources to our country's next generation of leaders.
