Black Male Educators Matter | Vincent Cobb II | TEDxWilmingtonED



Black men make up just 2% of US teachers- nationwide. Research shows a diverse teacher corps that better reflect the makeup and experiences of the student body can support significant academic and social gains among, not only students of color but students of all backgrounds. The Fellowship: Black Male Educators for Social Justice is committed to working with school districts to increase the number of highly effective Black male educators in public schools by 2025.

Vincent has a background in school leadership. He started his education career at the Syracuse City School District, where he worked for 7 years as a school administrator and then program director for the Say Yes to Education Foundation organizing faith based initiatives and school partnerships. In 2013, Mr. Cobb moved to Washington, DC as an Education Pioneer fellow working for the Maya Angelou Public Charter Schools to increase workforce readiness supports and internships for rising high school juniors and seniors. After the year-long fellowship, Cobb accepted a job with Teach for America, Philadelphia as the school and community partnerships regional manager with special focus on Black male achievement programs to help bolster the region’s Black male educators in the TFA corps and supports for Black male students in Philadelphia public schools. Recently, Cobb served as manager of family and community engagement with a portfolio of Mastery North Philadelphia schools. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
