Join us for Reading/Race Session #5
on Thursday, January 21

Last week's terrorist attack on the Capitol gave us a glaring example of what white supremacy, white privilege, and white power look like in very real terms, but of course these forces are also at work in embedded and insidious ways throughout our society, including in our schools, classrooms, bookshelves, and curricula. Register now for our January session of Reading/Race to discuss this vital book with other educators and continue developing antiracist instructional practices.

Free Virtual Author Event
for Schools & Students
Friday, February 5, at 11am EST

Ground Zero tells the story of two young people years and oceans apart whose lives converge: one who is trapped in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and another whose Afghan village is caught in the crossfire during a battle between the Taliban and the U.S. Army on September 11, 2019. Young people will find this book gripping and illuminating, especially as the 20th anniversary of 9/11 approaches.
