“The truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to somebody else.
The only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.”

THIS YEAR'S SUMMIT OCT. 14-18, 2017 DETROIT, MICHIGAN

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

Each fall, Pacific Educational Group brings together dedicated racial equity leaders from throughout the United States and around the world to engage in a deepened conversation about systemic racism and its impact on opportunity and achievement for all people. The National Summit for Courageous Conversation (NSCC) is uniquely designed for educators, civic and community leaders, and other professionals who are committed to elevating individual and organizational racial literacy and consciousness to eradicate racial disparities that are predictably evident in achievement. The NSCC is PEG’s venue for bringing together the most promising and effective racial equity leadership voices, practices, and results for examination and broader dissemination across the United States and globally.

A MESSAGE FROM GLENN SINGLETON

How might we become “a reflection of our better selves” in this modern time of unprecedented racial hatred and divisiveness? According to iconic civil rights leader and former National Urban League Executive Director, Whitney M. Young, Jr., “The truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to somebody else. The only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.”

This truth encapsulates the guiding vision of the National Summit for Courageous Conversation, reflecting on and striving toward our better self.

REGIONAL SUMMITS FOR COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION

Pacific Educational Group will host a set of equity-focused gatherings across the country as we exercise our commitment to staying grounded in that which is personal, local, and immediate. Our Regional Summits will offer locally-accessible and regionally-relevant seminars with the same spirit of collaboration and empowerment of our National Summit. The newly formed Latino Racial Equity Retreat will address the nuances of navigating, negotiating, constructing, and exercising race for Latinos in the United States. Issues impacting Latino students such as the intersections of race, language, and immigration will be explored as well. Join us!
