Education and Democracy: A Conversation with Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole

The Charles F. Kettering Foundation is proud to share the second in a series of videos featuring Kettering senior fellow Johnnetta Betsch Cole. Our president and CEO, Sharon L. Davies, sat down with Cole to document and celebrate her extensive and multifaceted journey over more than eight decades. Cole is a noted anthropologist, educator, author, speaker, and consultant on diversity, equity, accessibilities, and inclusion in workplaces. She is also the former president of both Spelman College and Bennett College and the former director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.

In this second in a series of videos we will share throughout 2024 featuring Cole, she reflects on the 70th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and considers the ongoing struggle for equal education.
