This episode of Equity Through Literacy highlights certain 'assumptions' we have about   Black children and literacy instruction that we should acknowledge and reject, and other assumptions about equity and literacy that we should embrace. Awareness is the goal and only after awareness can action take place. 

*Episode Correction: The $54 billion dollars I refer to in the podcast is actually $23 million. My apologies for the mistake BUT it's still a lot of money!
