Wrong Answer: Examining Stakeholder Voices in High Stakes Testing is an art-based intervention that highlights the challenges with testing in the black and brown communities who all too often fall victim to detrimental outcomes for being at the lower end of the educational achievement gap and instead, reimagines current testing practices and develops action steps through community dialogue to insight equitable change in society. Premiered at the New Africa House Theatre at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, MA December 2019.
