Raising Race/Other People's Children; Final meetings coming up!

For our final 2 meetings, we will move on to bring our inquiry about race, racism, and white supremacy to our own schools and classrooms by exploring "Raising Race Questions" by Ali Michael. 

For our August 1 meeting, we will read the Intro, Chapters 1 & 2, with a specific focus on Chapter 2 about "White Racial Identity Development". 

For the August 8 meeting, we will read Chapters 3, 4, and 5 with a specific focus on Chapter 5, titled "From Theory to Practice".   

I also wanted to share out this article, "Black Teachers Matter" from Mother Jones, which informed some of the statistics we used in meeting to and does a good job placing Delpit's work, specifically around educators of color, in a local context.

Next meeting is on Monday, August 1 from 4-5:30 at 4722 Baltimore Ave
