Virtual Gathering of Leaders: Mr. El-Mekki

As the third installment of EOS & COSEBOC’s Fall & Winter Series, Mr. Sharif El-Mekki will address the topic of Liberating Education: what it is and how it can serve the education of students, particularly students of color, by liberating their Freedom Dreams.

Mr. El-Mekki is the Founder and CEO of the Center for Black Educator Development. The Center exists to ensure there will be equity in the recruiting, training, hiring, and retention of quality educators that reflect the cultural backgrounds and share common socio-political interests of the students they serve. The Center also carries forth the freedom or liberation school legacy by hosting a Freedom School that incorporates research-based curricula and exposes high school and college students to the teaching profession to help fuel a pipeline of Black educators. Prior to founding the Center, El-Mekki served as a nationally recognized principal and U.S. Department of Education Principal Ambassador Fellow.
