As a mathematics education community, we want to bring attention and meaningful action to systemic inequities caused by long-standing racial oppression. All injustices, from climate change to income inequality to LGBTQ+ oppression, are exacerbated by racism. It’s not enough to simply denounce white supremacy and privilege, we must work actively to dismantle it.
We believe the biggest challenge facing the world right now is one of problem solving. We need to focus on the problem and our connections to it as well as to each other. Math 4 Antiracism will allow us to unite as a global movement to fight social injustice. There is no time to lose.
Math class is where students develop the critical thinking needed to challenge unjust systems in their own lives and communities. At Mathkind, our teacher partners guide their students to solve problems in the real world. These collaborations initiate active, meaningful steps toward greater equity and inclusion.
The contributions of Mathkind’s Black partners have been consistently underrepresented for too long. The videos on this page are part of our effort to place those contributions front and center. We’re amplifying the voices of BIPOC education leaders who are doing justice work in the US and abroad.
These videos also serve as a foundation for a free online course designed to examine beliefs and deepen understanding of high-quality math education as a driver of greater social justice. Join us in this professional learning opportunity that explores the role that antiracism plays in the math classroom. Listen to stories of education leaders, find resources to extend knowledge, and engage in community discussions.
