Jan 31 2023 • 42 mins

Host Jonathan Santos Silva speaks with leaders and educators from Brothers Liberating Our Communities (BLOC) in Kansas City, Missouri, about making teaching a sustainable career for Black men. Inspired by the work of Sharif El-Mekki from the Center for Black Educator Development (featured in Episode 201), BLOC began curating professional development specifically for Black men in education. Through connection, development, and engagement, the team has retained 100% of BLOC members. Founder Cornell Ellis and the team at BLOC hope that one day all students will have access to equal representation and revolutionary Black male educators. Changing Course is a podcast from Teach For America's One Day Studio.
