A Note from Ayodele Harrison, Senior Partner

Every month, Ayodele Harrison pens an overview of his month with Black Male Educators, Education, BMEsTalk and so much more. Review the replay, below. 

As I write, I’m excited. I’m feeling humbled and exhilarated about BMEsTalk. The impact of our work since launching in 2017, leaves me speechless. My vision was a digital space to uplift the perspectives of Black Male Educators on Twitter.  And that vision has grown exponentially. The work now includes the BMEsTalk Leadership Lab – a 4-month virtual leadership development series. 

The BMEsTalk Leadership Lab is a community of 50 + Black Male Educators representing 10 different states, the District of Columbia and the Netherlands. From a vision to a presence globally, who could imagine? It’s been an experience, enhancing connection and building community with Black Male Educators.

And now with the introduction of equity-centered facilitation, our community has so much promise.  

I like to think of myself as a lifelong learner. The things I am learning as a leader of BMEsTalk have equipped me with so many tools. With that, I help schools and organizations create affinity spaces for ALL educators, especially those that are Black, Latinx and Indigenous.

I didn’t think I had a voice in the space of educational equity. But the “AHA” is that my authentic self had rarely been invited to the table. For this reason, I didn’t think I had a voice.

I feel a great sense of peace, satisfaction, and accomplishment after recording this piece.  Please take a moment to listen as I continue to use my voice to serve our communities. 

Below are key resources and videos that I discussed in the video. Please click, like, comment, share and connect with me if to discuss next steps for you
