Join award-winning author Bettina L. Love, the Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia, and one of the field's most esteemed educational researchers, for a communitiy-wide conversation on abolitionist teaching. Pre-registration is required.

Love's writing, research, teaching, and activism meet at the intersection of race, education, abolition, and Black joy. Love is concerned with how educators working with parents and communities can build communal, civically engaged schools rooted in abolitionist teaching with the goal of intersectional social justice for equitable classrooms that love and affirm Black and Brown children. 

In 2020, Love co-founded the Abolitionist Teaching Network (ATN). ATN’s mission is simple: develop and support teachers and parents to fight injustice within their schools and communities.

She is the author of the books We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom and Hip Hop’s Li’l Sistas Speak: Negotiating Hip Hop Identities and Politics in the New South. Her work has appeared in numerous books and journals, including the English Journal, Urban Education, The Urban Review, and the Journal of LGBT Youth.
