Ivory Toldson, deputy director of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), will participate in two events at the annual conference of the American Education Research Association (AERA) in Philadelphia on Thursday, April 3, 2013.

At 2:15 p.m. Toldson will lead a panel discussion entitled "Breaking Barriers: Plotting the Path to Historically Black Colleges and Universities for School-Age Black Males." He and other panelists from Morehouse College, Ohio State University, UNC-Charlotte, and Clemson University will discuss ways that HBCUs can resolve inequities in U.S. public schools and expand college access to school-age black males.

At 6 p.m., Toldson will take part in a networking reception to answer questions about President Obama's My Brother's Keeper initiative and the Education Department’s recent civil rights data collection release.

Both events are sponsored by AERA’s Committee on Scholars of Color in Education.
