Book Club

The Integrated Schools Book Club is a way for people from across the country to come together and discuss books/articles/videos/podcasts pertaining to school integration. While the conversations are geared for parents, everyone is welcome.  We meet via video-conference and keep the sessions small so that everyone has a chance to talk — this is not a webinar!  There is no cost to attend — you need only internet access at the time of the meeting (and if you don’t have access to a computer with a camera, no worries).

 

How Book Club Works:

  • Register by clicking on the Current Session (you’ll be emailed a confirmation with simple instructions for how to log in to the video conference)
  • Invite your friends! Post on your social media!
  • Get ahold of the book/readings/podcast/videos
  • Read/Listen/View: do your homework.
  • Join the video-conference discussion at the given time and talk!

 

Join us in November for the next Integrated Schools Book Club discussion!

We will be reading How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. This book “reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America — but even more fundamentally, points us towards liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other.”  Having recently heard Dr. Kendi speak about this framework, I can’t wait to read the book and talk with Integrated Schools folks about how his action oriented approach can help inform our work. The book reviews all mention how accessible and easy to read this book is.  “How To Be An Antiracist promises to become an essential book for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next steps of contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.”
