The 2019 Shirley Dixon Keynote Speaker is Dr. Sonya Douglass Horsford, who is an acclaimed Professor at Teachers College, Columbia University and one of the leading scholars in the nation pertaining to the politics of race, education policy, and urban school leadership in the post-Civil Rights Era.
