Wednesday Lunch Talk — Culturally Responsive Pedagogy for Black and Latino Urban Queer Youth

Although recent, widespread attention to homophobic bullying in American K-12 schools has increased public concern over the plight of queer students, it has also fallen short of addressing a wider range of dilemmas facing urban queer students of color, whose needs extend beyond protection from homophobic victimization.  Drawing upon an ethnographic study of an urban, HIV/AIDS prevention and support services center, this article describes the center’s culturally responsive pedagogical work with Black and Latino urban queer youth, and it identifies several implications for how urban secondary schools can honor this population’s unique cultural experiences and address its specific educational needs.

Presented by Edward Brockenbrough, Assistant Professor and Director of the Urban Teaching and Leadership Program at the Warner School
