February’s Refresh: Context for People of Color by Juwan Platt

We’ve got a good one this month! Juwan Platt, one of my favorite people, is going to give us a preview of the talk he’s giving at AlterConf. Here’s the description:

Why is there such a lack of interest in STEM related fields in regards to people of color? As Juwan Platt says, they lack the contextual knowledge of why this stuff matters — and we as a community must inform them. A community guy himself, Juwan Platt encourages kids of color to take control of their future and dive into STEM related fields.

I expect a lively discussion around this topic, so come prepared to participate!

I hope to see you there!
