Why Should You Attend
Building of the unprecedented success and momentum of the 2022 Summit, ADES 2024 seeks to continue the work to advance the strategies and ideas that emerged at the first convening. Like the 2022 Summit, for the 2024 convening we will once again invite k-16 teachers/faculty, classified professionals, administrators, policy makers and educational equity advocates that work on the behalf of Black students.
Moreover, this conference being held on the ancestral homeland of African People provide a one-of-a- kind professional development opportunity for African American employees that allows them to understand both the historic and current educational context that will create the space and freedom to reimagine how we teach and serve Black students. In addition, as we witnessed with the 2022 Summit this convening will heal, restore and reinvigorate African American employees who have experienced the weight of working in spaces that have caused harm due to anti-blackness and racism. Given the success of the 2022 historic summit, the 2024 convening will likely attract educational practitioners, preeminent scholars and administrators from across the globe to discuss the power of African-centered education. On the behalf of the ADES planning committee and A2mend, I express our excitement and anticipation to experience with you the collective power, energy, and wisdom that will be unlocked by your presence at the 2024 ADES in Ghana, Africa.
