Black Lives Matter at School has a new anthem for the movement! The middle school duo from Seattle, Triple S (South Seattle Swagger)--Mc's Freeze 32 and Gucci Grape--is officially releasing their new track titled, "False Knowledge," fuel the struggle for Ethnic Studies and Black Studies. As Triple S wrote about the song, "This track is a runaway enslaved African from the master(narrative)."

I am excited to announce that I have a new book coming out from Rethinking Schools that I co-edited with Michael Charney and Bob Peterson: Teacher Unions and Social Justice: Organizing for the Schools and Communities Our Students Deserve. On Thursday, January 21, the book's editors will be joined by leading social justice union organizers Arlene Inouye and Michelle Gunderson to launch the book--and hopefully a new era of union power in the struggle for schools and society our children deserve.
I am writing to invite you to the book launch event on Wednesday, December 2nd at 5:00 p.m. Eastern for the new book I co-edited with Denisha Jones, "Black Lives Matter at School: An Uprising for Educational Justice!"
