If you missed the show, it was AWESOME!  No worries, though.  You can hear the whole program right here!


We were joined from Philadelphia by, Professor of Education, Dr. Zakia Y. Gates.  Dr. Gates refers to herself as an Intentional, Trans-formative Culturally Responsive Social Justice Professor of Education because it explicitly outlines what she does for her students.  Dr. Gates discussed transformation, social justice, and diversity in education, as well as why irrational thought is now the “new intelligence.”  For more information, about culturally responsive social justice in education, you can follow Dr. Gates on Twitter, on Facebook, and on LinkedIn.  And you can contact her for more info at:  DrGates218@gmail.com.
