Zakiya spoke with Dr. Arash Daneshzadeh. Dr. Daneshzadeh’s doctoral research at UC Davis involved an ethnographic study of Black girls participating in Restorative Justice programs at a local alternative school in San Francisco, which focuses on navigational capital among Black girls (who are often forgotten and invisibilized by the education system). Since 2017, Arash facilitated programs for Story For All, a local nonprofit that coaches educational practitioners on culturally responsive teaching and art-infused oral history methodology. He is a founding team member of a public school in Arizona called Phoenix International Academy whose pedagogical model is grounded on project based learning and restorative practices. Currently, Dr. Daneshzadeh serves as Editor-In-Chief of The Journal of Transformative Justice.
