Welcome Deeper Learners!

We are excited to welcome you to Westwood, MA at the end of September. The Deeper Learning Boston conference has a rich history. Although this is our inaugural year of the conference, the Deeper Learning movement began in the Northeast region and spread domestically and globally from there. Please enjoy this short background on the conference itself, where we honor "On Whose Shoulders We Stand: A Brief History"

This digital program is for all things DL Boston! Be sure to select one Deep Dive for Day 1 and two Den Talks for Day 2. You will only be able to sign up for one Deep Dive! These sessions have capacity limits and will fill up. To see an overview of the event and session types, check out the event flow.

We can’t wait to see you!

Patsy Rembert

Featured in Chasing Me to My Grave: An Artist’s Memoir of the Jim Crow South
Patsy Rembert is Winfred Rembert’s wife of 46 years. She is featured in Winfred Rembert’s Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, Chasing Me to My Grave: An Artist’s Memoir of the Jim Crow South (Bloomsbury, 2021). Winfred Rembert (1945-2021) was an artist from Cuthbert, Georgia. His paintings on carved and tooled leather have been exhibited at museums and galleries across the country and compared to the work of Jacob Lawrence, Romare Beardon, and Horace Pippin. Rembert was honored by the Equal Justice Initiative in 2015 and awarded an United States Artists Barr Fellowship in 2016.
Patsy met Winfred while he was in prison and doing forced labor near her home in Turner County, GA. After four years of letter-writing, the two married upon his release in 1974 and moved north, settling in New Haven, CT, where they raised eight children and Mrs. Rembert became a longtime youth advocate.  It was Patsy who first convinced her husband to pursue art seriously, and to tell his life story visually, using the leather-tooling skills he’d learned in prison.
