Dr. Howard Stevenson

University of Pennsylvania GSE
Professor and Author
Philadelphia, PA
Dr. Howard Stevenson is the Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education, Professor of Africana Studies, and former Chair of the Applied Psychology and Human Development Division in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.  He is a nationally recognized researcher in independent and public K-12 schools and teaches how children can develop healthy racial identities through racial stress management.  His most recent book, Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools: Differences That Make a Difference, shifts a focus on race relations away from “colorblind-ness” toward racial literacy: the ability to read, recast, and resolve racially stressful encounters when they happen.  This work is based on racial interactions research and 30 years of intervention experience in schools to prepare children, parents and teachers to identify unfairness and become academically assertive.
