Woke in the WELS: Martin Luther College #1, black power bulletin board


The picture above was provided by way of a student at Martin Luther College (MLC), the worker-training school of the WELS. This bulletin board was posted on campus in anticipation of MLK Day 2023, featuring a black power fist. 

Besides the use of the black power fist, the panel left-center reads "culturally responsive teaching session" - the "other CRT" peddled by Gloria Ladson-Billings - a repackaging a Paulo Friere's generative-themes model and cousin to Social-Emotional Learning, of which I have much to say, and hard to explain, for MLC has bought into woke education models...

But we'll save SEL for a future installment.
