The Culture Trap
Lunch and Learn Talk by Derron Wallace
Friday, January 26, 2024
In this talk, Derron Wallace will explore the structural, cultural and historical factors that shape the educational experiences of Black youth in London and New York City. Based on his new ethnography, The Culture Trap, Wallace argues that the overemphasis on culture as the secret to Black (and racially minoritized) students' success or failure in schools is not only tricky; it is a trap.
