I love the authenticity in this conversation so much! Thank you soooo much Dr. Oates-Primus for courageously addressing the elephant in the room in our educational system!!!

"Imposter Syndrome" Yes! I've been there!
Ida Swindle-Jewell (she/her)

Hats off to you Debonair. Speak it!!!
S. Antrom

I am so glad that you are talking about this!!!!
Katherine Gilmore Richardson
42:18
Authenticity is key! Yes, imposter syndrome is real in all spaces. Always over preparing and outperforming. Thank you Dr Oates-Primus for highlighting our truths.

"YOU ARE ENOUGH"
Tracey Lewis-Giggetts
44:40
So good. Tearing down this notion that we have to perform for our worthiness—especially as Black women. The counter narrative being that we are worthy when we walk through the door.
Ayanna Washington
45:01
We have been taught "informally" and "formally" to be chameleons to survive our professional space.

exactly @Aubria. Our students need safe spaces to be themselves and be vulnerable, that is our primary responsibility as educational leaders.
Tracey Lewis-Giggetts
49:35
Absolutely @Ayanna. And it comes from the fact that there was a time when “standing out” too much was an actual threat to our bodies. Safety. Survival. It’s embedded in us to lean into the things that will keep us safe. But it’s time to thrive. To be excellent and authentic as Dr. Oates-Primus is positing here.
Katherine Gilmore Richardson
49:54
Thank you for creating safe spaces for your students Dr. Oates-Primus!
kerry a (she/they)
51:55
Thank you Dr. Oates-Primus for embodying and sharing how invaluable and powerful it is for our students to have their authenticity and totality reflected while holding space for their vulnerability. It is such an honor to be here to receive your teaching.
Sandra Gonzalez-Torres-CCP (she/her)
55:01
TRUTH!!! Sad how being human is penalized by society. Thank YOU Dr. Oates-Primus for being an example of growth, vulnerability, truth - of taking space! Our students are capable. They matter!!!
Aubria Nance
57:07
They are worthy of challenge!
Michele Claybrook-Lucas
57:23
We have models of how becoming a “chameleon” works in a professional space: Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris, Oprah Winfrey,, Don Thompson (CEO, McDonalds), Rosalind Brewer (CEO, Walgreens)... I could go on but I won’t. We all know someone or perhaps a personal experience, where it was necessary to adapt a certain persona to convey confidence and expertise. This is necessary for certain industries (especially financial services) However, I believe that you can be “authentic” and professional, the two concepts do not have to be mutually exclusive; they can co-exist. I don’t think that if we listen to rap music, you’re being authentic - it means that you like rap music. We have to convey this notion to our students. They are capable, and competent and the world is waiting for them. Thank you for your wonderful lecture.
Tracey Lewis-Giggetts
58:32
That’s it… “worthy of the challenge” Yes!
Ayanna Washington
58:40
Wow, soft bigotry. That one hit different.

Ravyn Davis (she,her)
01:07:11
This lecture is transformative--just as I thought it would be. It is impossible for the audience to not view CCP, our students, and our roles in their education differently. Such a powerful teacher and a speaker I could listen to over and over--I wish this could be a lecture series. This should be a TED talk.
Frances B. Woodford
01:08:09
Great ideas, Ravyn! We can make it happen!
Ida Swindle-Jewell (she/her)
01:08:15
Such powerful teaching. Wow!!! I applaud you in every way. You are a light in everyway.
Sandra Gonzalez-Torres-CCP (she/her)
01:08:18
@Ravyn. YES! A TED talk!!!
Rainah Chambliss

Frances B. Woodford
01:10:16
Sing it, Cherise! I have to confess that the other day, I said to myself, "What would Cherise say?"
Jenavia Weaver
01:10:49

NOT Basic! Phenomenal
Mary Hoeffel
01:11:42
You’re the opposite of basic, Dr Oates-Primus. You’re an absolute inspiration. “Unapologetic brave dreaming,” yes.

I incorporate a similar practice in my biology courses at the beginning of the semester and at midterm. This also helps students to focus on developing a path to success.

Thank you Dr. Oates-Primus for exemplifying what is required to engage students for the risk it takes to be authentic as a person of color and the exciting journey which leads to their destiny.
Jenavia Weaver
01:12:41
@ Rainah and Ayanna - totally agree. TED Talk!
Sandra Gonzalez-Torres-CCP (she/her)
01:12:42
You drive change! You are the next generation!
Nicole Duncan-Kinard
01:12:48
Thanks for encouraging us to be unapologetic. It's very easy as a woman of color to feel you're at the crossroads where you're respected by your peers but at the same time marginalized within the wider society -- being seen as too passionate, too aggressive, even too sensitive.
Claudia Curry
01:13:01
Awesome presentation Dr. Debonair! Thanks so much for making your voice heard and raising awareness. So glad to know you. I appreciate you. Empowered and thriving is Dr. Debonair!
