11th:   Program

Fighting White Privilege: Bringing Computer Science to a City School.

Speaker: Leroy Day, Ph.D., Comparative Literature, Languages, Business, Computer Science, Volunteer Lift for Life Academy

Two facts collided to make Dr. Day want to bring a computer science program to Lift for Life Academy, a St Louis City charter school: 1. Salaries for computer programmers are very robust, 2. There are very few African-Americans being hired as programmers. Can a high school computer science program be a step towards changing this situation? Learn what Dr. Day has been doing in his retirement to encourage African Americans and combat White Privilege.
