** MEDIA ADVISORY **

Teresa McCarty, Leading Scholar on Indigenous Education to Give 12th Annual Brown Lecture on October 22 in Washington, D.C.

WHAT
The 12th Annual Brown Lecture in Education Research, held by the American Educational Research Association. The title of this year’s lecture is “So That Any Child May Succeed -- Indigenous Pathways toward Justice and the Promise of Brown.”


Dr. McCarty will examine hard-fought pathways toward educational justice forged by Indigenous educators, parents, leaders, and allies; the larger colonial project in which those efforts are embedded; and the ways in which Indigenous initiatives are braided with those of others. She will conclude with ongoing challenges in fulfilling the promise of Brown and what can be learned from diverse models of contemporary Indigenous education practice.

The Brown Lecture illuminates the important role of research in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education. Now in its 12th year, the Brown Lecture was inaugurated by AERA in 2004 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court took scientific research into account in issuing its landmark ruling. Each year a distinguished scholar notable for producing significant research related to equality in education is invited to give this public lecture in Washington, D.C.

WHO
Teresa L. McCarty is a world-renowned scholar on Indigenous language planning, policy, education, and revitalization. She is a professor of education and anthropology at the University of California–Los Angeles and professor emerita at Arizona State University.
