Learn + Reflect: The Intersection of Race & Education

Join us for part two of our summer series of learning, reflection and action in service of our community becoming the best version of itself. ALL are welcome - the greater the diversity of perspective, identity, age, and more, the richer our discussions will be. Here's how it works:

1) Select an item to read, watch, or listen to, from the list below. All explore the intersection of race and education. You are only expected to choose 1 from the list, and are welcome to choose more.

Abolitionist Teaching and the Future of Our Schools filmed conversation with thought leaders, educators, and authors Bettina Love, Gholdy Muhammed, and Dena Simmons [Click title for link] (90 minutes)

Miss Buchanan's Period of Adjustment episode from Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History podcast [Click title for link] (30 minutes)

Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools book (272 pages) by Amanda E. Lewis and John B. Diamond

Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in School book (303 pages) by Monique W. Morris and the author's TED Talk (13 minutes)

Everyday Antiracism: Getting Real about Race in School book (389 pages) by Mica Pollock and a Q&A with the author


2) Sign up below for a discussion session: either Wednesday 7/29 or Thursday 7/30. Following sign up, we will email you the discussion questions so that you can keep those in mind as you read, watch, or listen. The email will also contain instructions on how to join the discussion using the Zoom platform. 

3) Join us on your selected date for facilitated small-group breakout discussion followed by a full-group share out. Our discussion questions will include:

  • What affirmed or broadened something you already believe and value?
  • What new information or insights stood out to you?

4) Keep the conversation going with your friends and neighbors. Host your own discussion. And join us for the rest of our Learn. Reflect. Act. series. 

Please select a date below to join us for a facilitated discussion on the intersection of race and education.

The Learn. Reflect. Act. series acknowledges the impacts of the current pandemic on our work, as well as the unique opportunity we have right now to take steps toward dismantling racism and inequities in our community. We know that no single day, no single action can address systemic racism by itself, but we are confident that when we engage in meaningful activities, reflecting both as individuals and as a collective, we can make change. Join us!
