Carl (CJ) Greer is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Greer’s youth worker and educator background within Milwaukee and Detroit contexts inspired him to pursue doctoral training in becoming a community-based tenure track faculty member that examines how the relationship between schools and community-based education spaces can holistically develop Black youth. His current work examines the attempt to erase racially minoritized communities’ narratives by censoring Critical Race Theory and other social justice frameworks (e.g., equity, ethnic studies, multiculturalism) in schools.
