As educators and concerned members of this democracy we are compelled to have courageous and honest dialogue about race. Racism is the result of a complex interplay of individual attitudes, collective social values, and institutional practices. When we begin to better understand these forces, examine our own beliefs and implicit bias’, be reflective, transparent and vulnerable there is movement forward to eradicate racism in our schools and in our society. It is in this spirit we invite you to join the conversation in a virtual book study with educator, activist and author Jesse Hagopian.
Jesse will lead us through a book discussion of Teaching for Black Lives.
Saturday, September 19 & Saturday, October 3, 2020 from 10-12 p.m.
Please plan to participate in both sessions.
