Book Club ~ Nikole Hannah-Jones

 

The Nikole Hannah-Jones Fan Club Book Club!

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 2.57.32 PMIntegrated Schools is unapologetically and enthusiastically part of the Nikole Hannah-Jones Fan Club – and in March we’ll be doing this with gusto! Last year we discussed some of her best material for our first ever book club, and now want to revisit our love for her work as we eagerly await the arrival of her’ upcoming book, The Problem we all Live With.  Even better, all of our discussion ‘homework’ is online; no books to fetch!

Whether you are new to thinking about school integration or have been at this awhile, this is bound to be a lively conversation.

Our Book Club Selections for March have been selected for their breadth and rich-discussion potential and we hope you find them as provocative as we do.
