Honesty in Education: The Lies, Truth and Controversy behind Ohio’s ‘Divisive Concepts’ Bills and How to Fight Back
August 25, 2021 | 5:00 PM Eastern Time

We’ve all been coping with this Divisive Concept controversy for the last several months. Where did this all come from and what does it mean for our members and organization? Learn from an expert – Antioch College’s Dr. Kevin McGruder – about how this allegedly “new” controversy is not new, why it has become such a pernicious and persistent attack on the work our members do, and most importantly how to fight back!

Kevin McGruder, Ph.D.About the speaker:
Kevin McGruder, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of History, Antioch College

Kevin McGruder’s interest in community formation led to a career in community development, and now as an academic, to research interests that include African American institutions, urban history, and gay and lesbian history. He has a B.A. in Economics from Harvard University and an M.B.A. in Real Estate Finance from Columbia University. Before pursuing doctoral studies at City University of New York, McGruder worked for many years in the field of nonprofit community development. Positions included Program Director at Local Initiatives Support Corporation, Director of Real Estate Development with the Abyssinian Development Corporation, and Executive Director of Gay Men of African Descent (in New York City).

McGruder’s interest in Harlem’s history led to two entrepreneurial ventures. From 1990 to 1991 he was owner/manager of Home to Harlem gift shop, and from 2000 to 2008 he was co-owner of Harlemade Style Shop, a store providing Harlem-themed tee shirts, books and other items celebrating Harlem.

During the 2011-2012 academic year McGruder was a Scholar in Residence at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, of the New York Public Library, where he conducted additional research and revised his doctoral dissertation for publication as a book. The result is Race and Real Estate: Conflict and Cooperation in Harlem, 1890-1920 (Columbia University Press, June 2015).
