“One moment I am proud of was when my students presented their original call and response piece to the whole school on Zoom. As a bilingual educator who is a product of colonization, it was transformative to investigate the connection between African American and Afro-Latin artistic expression with my third graders. We learned about history in the Americas through an antiracist lens and explored culturally relevant dance and music forms with experts from our classroom community and abroad. Ultimately this interdisciplinary experience allowed my students to deepen their sense of cultural identity and connect to African American culture by learning about art and allyship in a sociohistorical context.”
