Join us for an enlightening and thought-provoking evening as the USF School of Education's Center for Humanizing Education & Research (C-HER)proudly presents "Engineered Conflict: School Closings, Public Housing, Law Enforcement, and the Future of Black Life." In this dynamic event, esteemed scholar David Stovall engages in a compelling conversation with David Philoxene, delving into critical issues that intersect at the crossroads of education, housing, law enforcement, and the Black experience.

🗣️ Dr. David Stovall, Ph.D. is Professor of African-American Studies and Criminology, Law & Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).  His scholarship investigates three areas 1) Critical Race Theory, 2) the relationship between housing and education, and 3) the intersection of race, place and school. In the attempt to bring theory to action, he works with community organizations and schools to develop curriculum that address issues of equity and justice.  His work led him to become a member of the design team for the Greater Lawndale/Little Village School for Social Justice (SOJO), which opened in the Fall of 2005. Furthering his work with communities, students, and teachers, his work manifests itself in his involvement with the Peoples Education Movement, a collection of classroom teachers, community members, students and university professors in Chicago, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area who engage in collaborative community projects centered in creating relevant curriculum.  In addition to his duties and responsibilities as a professor at UIC, he also served as a volunteer social studies teacher at the Greater Lawndale/Little Village School for Social Justice from 2005-2018.

🗣️Dr. David A. Philoxene is faculty in the Department of Teacher Education at the University of San Francisco School of Education. He earned his Ph.D in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, and was previously a Gerardo Marin Fellow at the University of San Francisco. His current research focuses on geographies of race and safety, including Black youth’s sense-making and spatial practices across school and community. He is committed to (re)telling stories of resistance, survival, and possibility, and studying educational and community spaces that exemplify this.
