Keynote Address: We Got This
Please join the Region 16 Comprehensive Center in welcoming Cornelius Minor, author of “We Got This.”

Cornelius Minor is a Brooklyn-based educator. He works with teachers, school leaders, and leaders of community-based organizations to support equitable literacy reform in cities (and sometimes villages) across the globe. Most recently, along with his partner and wife, Kass Minor, he has established The Minor Collective, a community-based movement designed to foster sustainable change in schools. Whether working with educators and kids in Los Angeles, Seattle, or New York City, Cornelius uses his love for technology, hip-hop, and social media to bring communities together. As a teacher, Cornelius draws not only on his years teaching middle school in the Bronx and Brooklyn, but also on time spent skateboarding, shooting hoops, and working with young people.

In this keynote, we’ll explore educational equity and access in schools, thinking about how the work of creating more equitable school spaces is embedded in our everyday choices—specifically in the choice to really listen to kids, and discuss how to disrupt mechanisms and systems that marginalize children.
