Maisha T. Winn, Associate Professor in Language, Literacy, and Culture at Emory University and a new member of the Bread Loaf faculty,
gave the Keynote Address for Middlebury College’s Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration in January 2012.
In her speech, Professor Winn questioned how King’s ideals of equality and justice are to be realized in an age when there is an increasing “school to prison pipeline.”
She also presented “Still Writing in Rhythm: Youth Poets at Work in the World” at the Institute for Urban and Minority Education (IUME) of the Teachers College at Columbia University. Winn is a Visiting Faculty Fellow at the IUME. See video of the talk here.
She is also the co-author with Latrise Johnson of Writing Instruction in Culturally Relevant Classrooms (published by the National Council of Teachers of English, 2011).
