The purpose of this paper is to outline how a transformative justice approach can be used to improve the professional development of Black teachers. Situating the current state of the Black teaching force in the United State as a manifestation of continued harm toward Black people who seek to use education for liberation, the author suggests that this harm be formally addressed through strategic work with Black teachers and the institutions they work in. This paper offers examples of how one national professional development organization is engaging in such a process. TJEC%20Working%20Paper%2C%20Mosely%202019.pdf
