It’s a select group of women eductors who achieved a terminal degree – all from the same university and at the same time. “The Great Eight” will be featured during the next webinar hosted by The DREAM (Dismantling Racism through Education, Advocacy and Mobilization) Collective at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
“A Conversation with the Great Eight” will begin at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5 on the DREAM Collective’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28LIZrQtJPw.
Collectively referred to as “The Great Eight,” these Black women made history by receiving doctorate degrees from the Indiana University School of Education on the same weekend. Join the DREAM Collective for a conversation with members of this elite group of academicians, as they discuss their journey and the significance of eight marginalized Black women completing doctoral degrees from one school at the same time.
