This book highlights the work of Rise for Racial Justice, an organization that launched a public racial literacy campaign in 2020 when the nation?s interest in exploring the history and present reality of anti-Black police violence was at a high. Protests following the murder of George Floyd focused the public?s attention on anti-Black racism, sparking calls for racial justice. There was a resulting demand for antiracism training to help make sense of the ongoing twin pandemics of anti-Black racism and white supremacy.
Rise for Racial Justice: How to Talk About Race With Schools and Communities makes a unique contribution to the discussion about antiracism training for schools and communities. The authors draw on the experiences of antiracism facilitators as they teach about race, racism, and racial justice and share curricula, pedagogical strategies, tools, and practices that support the learning and engagement of educators and youth learners.
- Examples of curricula and suggested pedagogy for antiracism training geared toward teachers and other adults in leadership and/or parenting roles.
- Tools to help school communities talk about race and racism, as well as practices for pursuing racial justice.
- Practical, narrative-based advice about the opportunities and challenges of engaging in antiracism training.
