As we continue to navigate this unprecedented time we will be offering a book study for timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism— and antiracism— in America for our High School students. The companion book will be Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, which is specifically written for teens and young adults, and is available on Amazon and BarnesandNoble.com.
This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.
The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future.
It will takes us on a race journey from then to now, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited. This book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas— and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.
We will be meeting via Zoom, Wednesday’s beginning July 8th at 4:30 p.m. for 6 weeks.
