About our Keynote Speaker
Dr. Robert S. Harvey is an educator and writer, public scholar and arts enthusiast, community leader and child advocate. Drawing upon lived experiences, ethical thought, and a bold vision for the future of human wellbeing, his leadership, writing, and being has a threefold focus—love, justice, and hope. He is the Superintendent of East Harlem Scholars Academies, a community-based network of public charter schools (PreK-12) in New York City; and Chief Academic Officer of East Harlem Tutorial Program, managing a multisite out-of-school time and postsecondary access and success program, public engagement, and a teaching residency. He is also a Visiting Professor in the Practice of Public Leadership at Memphis Theological Seminary.
Dr. Harvey has committed himself to lifelong learning through a doctorate in leadership and society from Memphis Theological Seminary, master of theological studies from Harvard University, and bachelor of arts from Bryant University.
He is author of Abolitionist Leadership in Schools: Undoing Systemic Injustice through Communally Conscious Education, which works from an abolitionist lineage to guide education and community-based leaders in providing preemptive, premeditated, and progressive leadership while countering the impacts of racism that endure in our schools and communities. In Spring 2022, his second book will be released, entitled, Teaching as Protest: Emancipating Classrooms through Racial Consciousness.
Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
