In this workshop, which is for women educators of color taught by women teachers of color, we will explore themes of inheritance and responsibility from our perspective as matrilineal stewards.

Together we will read mentor texts in the form of poems and essays to foster conversations and facilitate our own writing to contribute to the creation of a final class anthology of writing. We will acknowledge and embrace all the women who came before us, and how we as women plan to redeem and transform the strength of these past experiences in our future lineages as women and as educators.
