After the summer hiatus, Integrated Schools’ Book Club is back! Join parents across the country on September 25, 2018 to discuss two articles and a video (all available free online)… This session is great for parents who are new to thinking about school integration as well as parents who’ve been in these discussions for awhile…
- Enjeti, Anjali (2016) Ghosts of White People Past: Witnessing White Flight from an Asian Ethnoburb (If diversity is so important to liberal whites, why do they keep fleeing ethnically diverse suburbia?) Pacific Standard Magazine, August 25.
- Hannah-Jones, Nikole (2016) Choosing a School for my Daughter in a Segregated City: How one school became a battleground over which children benefit from a separate and unequal system. New York Times Magazine, June 9.

HOW Book Club WORKS:
- REGISTER by clicking on the time slot that works for you… (We keep these conversation groups small to encourage meaningful discussion. We also try to offer a variety of times to accommodate lives and time zones. Please let us know if you’re interested in participating but cannot make one of these times work &/or if you need to cancel).
- Follow the links to the articles/video. Read and watch!
- At your chosen time, log in through your computer or phone (it’s easy and free), and join the conversation online with parents from across the country.
- Invite your friends, share on social media!
