On February 2, 2021 , from 2 to 3:30p.m. EST the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans (WHIEEAA) housed at the U.S. Department of Education (ED) hosted the virtual roundtable titled Embracing the Black Family in Schools: Cultural Competency, Teacher Diversity and Family Engagement. WHIEEAA established the African American Education (AfAmEd) Connector Roundtable Series to address gaps and opportunities for African Americans students and families, and to highlight programs, policies, and practices that accelerate the learning and development of Black students of all ages.
