I’m grateful for this book today.
I am also really grateful for the meeting and discussion we had this week, the first of several we will have as a group of educators unpacking this book together. Especially on a day like this, it’s a source of solace… Talking with a whole bunch of people who give a sh*t about other humans, who want to change things, and are prepared to do some difficult, critical, personal work to get there.
I’m also feeling thankful for my Quaker upbringing, which laid a solid early foundation in social justice. I think the anti-racist journey is less shocking/upsetting when you start at elementary school-age. (Hence, this book club for schoolteachers…)
