Diversity Lecture Series with David Stovall, PhD

Register today for the Online Webinar 

SEHD is pleased to welcome David Stovall, PhD, professor in the Departments of Black Studies and Criminology, Law, and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), to deliver the keynote for the annual Diversity Lecture Series.

Dr. Stovall’s conversation is titled “The Demand for Educational Justice Remains Unflinching: Disrupting Chaos and Building Possibilities.” His conversation will take the current moment into account, considering the attacks on Critical Race Theory and any inclusion of critical perspectives on race, class, gender, age, (dis)ability, and sexual orientation in K-20 education.

Dr. Stovall’s scholarship investigates the areas of Critical Race Theory, the relationship between housing and education, and the intersection of race, place, and school. In the attempt to bring theory to action, he works with community organizations and schools to address issues of equity, justice, and abolishing the school/prison nexus.

The Special Education Program is pleased to bring top motivational youth speaker, David Flood, to Fairfield University for an engaging talk about how our community can be more inclusive. Flood’s humorous and genuine speaking style empowers both youth and adults with social and emotional skills while teaching them the crucial life skills of dignity and respect.

David’s start as a youth speaker comes from personal experience. He grew up impacted by addiction in his family, and his oldest son has autism. He is active in his church, is a hospice volunteer who visits with terminally ill patients, and he is on the board of K.I.D.S. Plus, Inc., a non-profit organization that helps special needs children through sports and other activities. David attends meetings and participates in activities with The Anti-Bias Consortium for Nassau County Schools. He is also a member of The Northport-East Northport Drug and Alcohol Task Force.
