CHICAGO HEIGHTS—(ENEWSPF)—February 6, 2018. In recognition of Black History Month, Prairie State College (PSC) is hosting a special guest speaker, Dr. David Stovall of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), who will present “Engineering Conflict: Distractions, Conflict and the Future of Black Life,” from noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27.

Dr. Stovall’s presentation is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Barnes & Noble College Auditorium on the college’s main campus at 202 s. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights.

Stovall will discuss concrete examples of the challenges and contradictions of dealing with conflict and distractions central to education. A panel discussion focusing on the relevance of these lessons for students, community and families, as well as educational leaders and teachers of all subjects and grade levels will follow Stovall’s presentation.

Stovall is a professor of educational policy and African-American studies at UIC. His research interests include critical race theory, the relationship between housing and education, the intersection of race, place and school and the relationship between schools and community stakeholders.
