Alternative Assets and Community Cultural Wealth in Academia with Kira Donnell

Dr. Tara Yosso describes Community Cultural Wealth as “an array of knowledges, skills, abilities and contacts possessed and used by Communities of Color to survive and resist racism and other forms of oppression.” Students of color use these forms of wealth to navigate, survive, and thrive in educational institutions that were not created to support their positionalities and experiences. Join us for a discussion of how we recognize and support the wealth of community resources students bring to the classroom.
