Practices for Racial Equity, Justice and Community
As is our traditional practice, we ask NDSG participants to deepen individual understanding and inform our common thinking by reading or viewing a book, set of articles or videos before the annual meeting.
This year we ask you to read
Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
The framing questions for the conference are:
What resources do you need to be braver or more courageous?
How does fear play into your decisions to take action regarding race, justice and community in education?
Please open the links below to read the following books, articles and videos that will inform your thinking before the meeting.
Please bring the book and other items you have found to be important to your own understanding of the intersection of race, justice, community and education.
Between the World and Me
