Teaching While Black: The Life and Lessons of Pioneering Educator Fanny Jackson Coppin
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Prior to the Civil War era, no African American woman had earned a bachelor’s degree or been appointed to teach a class of white students. Fanny Jackson Coppin managed to do both. Born into slavery, she went on to become Oberlin College’s second Black female graduate, its first Black instructor, and a lifelong educator and activist. For over three decades, she served as principal of Philadelphia’s Institute for Colored Youth (now Cheyney University). This lecture explains how Coppin’s life shaped her teaching philosophy. From her own adversities and achievements, Coppin knew better than anyone that knowledge was power. As an educator, she dismissed disparities in students’ means, backgrounds, and preparation and began instead from the premise that every child has the ability to learn.
 
About the speaker:
 
John Frederick Bell is an Assistant Professor of History at Assumption University. His research examines the intersecting histories of race, education and social reform in nineteenth-century America. His forthcoming book, Degrees of Equality: Abolitionist Colleges and the Politics of Race, will be published by Louisiana State University Press.

Mary Kiley, an educator at St. John’s Preparatory School in Danvers, has been Sonia’s Legacy Partner since the inception of the program, learning at Sonia’s hand how to carry on for her.

Digital Detox: Mindful Living in a Distracted World with Dr. Josh Misner
6:30 PM

Presented by Whitman Public Library:

In this one hour talk Josh Misner, PhD will discuss the importance of mindful presence as a means of achieving balance and cultivating longer-lasting, more meaningful relationships based on his book Put the F**king Phone Down which takes a raw, unapologetic look at the rising tide of screen addiction and how we can all reclaim control of our attention. 

 
Although technology has the potential to erode focus, one notification buzz at a time, Put the F**king Phone Down presents a variety of mindfulness-based countermeasures to the Age of Distraction, each designed to develop greater awareness, control, resilience, and an overall appreciation of life as it happens.

Dr. Misner will take questions from the audience following the presentation.

About Dr. Josh Misner
A professor of communication, alumnus of Gonzaga University, and TEDx survivor, Dr. Misner has been featured in a variety of publications, including The Huffington Post, Time, and The Good Men Project.
