How to Raise and Teach Anti-Racist Kids
Hosted by International Literacy Association
In the aftermath of tragic events and traumatic experiences, children look to the adults in their lives—families, caregivers, and educators—not only to provide comfort and make sense of those lived experiences but also to offer guidance in how to imagine a better world.
But adults don’t always have the answers. We, too, need guidance and support.
That’s why the International Literacy Association (ILA) is partnering with Kwame Alexander on “How to Raise and Teach Anti-Racist Kids,” a virtual Town Hall this Thursday, June 18, at 7:00 p.m. ET.
This event will stream through Facebook Live video and be saved onto our YouTube channel afterwards.
The first half of the event will be a panel discussion hosted by Kwame Alexander.
Featured guests are as follows:
• Cornelius Minor, author of We Got This: Equity, Access, and the Quest to Be Who Our Students Need Us to Be
• Tiffany M. Jewell, author of This Book Is Anti-Racist
• Pam Allyn, global literacy expert and coauthor (with Ernest Morrell) of Every Child a Super Reader
• Noni Thomas López, head of school at The Gordon School in Providence, RI
• Karyn Parsons, author and founder of Sweet Blackberry
Stephen G. Peters, vice president of the ILA Board of Directors, will deliver opening remarks.
A live Q&A will follow the panel discussion.
