In her foreword to the new book, "Black Lives Matter at School: An Uprising for Educational Justice" BLM co-founder Opal Tometi writes: "Both within classrooms and outside the school grounds, Black lives are under threat." Join us for this conversation about making Black lives matter in our schools and beyond as part of this year's Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action.
Whatever you are doing to be part of the Week of Action, we want to know about it and we hope that you put your community on the BLM at Schools movement map! Click on the link and register your community as participating.
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!"
"'Black Lives Matter at School' is an essential resource for all those seeking to build an antiracist school system." —Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning and #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Calling all educators, parents, students, and antiracist community organizers: We call on you to join the Black Lives Matter at School new initiative, the “Year of Purpose”—a national program that calls on educators (and parents educating their kids at home) to answer reflection questions about developing their antiracist pedagogy and join in a day of action every month of the school year.
