Parent-Space: Racism in America Next Meetings
December 7th and January 25th
Monday December 7 (6-7pm). We will be viewing a series of short videos to discuss — links to come after Thanksgiving.
Monday January 25th (6-7pm): We will be discussing the book Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism and You — A Remix by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi.
This book is intended for YA audiences and is a quick, invigorating read — a fascinating (and very engaging) look at American history and racism. The audio book is also excellent and could be a great car ride, at 4:00 in length.
There will be an opportunity to discuss this book WITH YOUR STUDENT, as teachers and students will have the opportunity to read as well (details to come). Get a head start and begin now — same for your child!
The goal of this new monthly study group is to meet (online) and connect with fellow parents to focus on the deeply important work of confronting racism. We aim to gain personal insight about our own explicit and implicit beliefs and values.
We welcome all parents and caregivers to participate. As we work together, we’ll decide what texts or sources about American racism to study: podcasts, poetry, literature, news, comedy, or music.
