Twitter Chat Recap: #G2Great with Dr. Gholdy Muhammad

On June 18, Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, Georgia State University associate professor of language, literacy and culture, joined the Literacy Lenses #G2Great Twitter chat to talk about critical topics from her book, Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy.

During the chat, participants discussed how to foster anti-racism practices in schools, and Dr. Muhammad’s Historically Responsive Literacy Framework to ensure equity in education and cultivate the genius of Black and Brown students by addressing the following learning pursuits: Identity, Skills, Intellect and Criticality.

The equity framework for teaching and learning presented in Cultivating Genius draws from Dr. Muhammad’s research on the learning pursuits of 19th-century Black literary societies, which promoted literacy as a conduit for lifelong learning, while countering racism and oppression.
