Reading, Writing and Racism is an unapologetic examination of how curriculum choices can perpetuate White supremacy, and offers radical strategies for how schools and teacher education programs can disrupt and transform racism in education. All are welcome to join Harvard’s Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at this interactive book launch that brings together a community of poets, teachers and teacher educators. This event will kick off with music an images from DJ Justis and poetry from Nelly Bess. Participants will hear from the author, Bree Picower, about how White teachers must reframe their understanding about race in order to advance racial justice. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the ways that Whiteness was present in their own educational experiences and to freedom dream about how schools can create humanizing educational experiences for all. Finally, we will learn from a panel of racial justice teachers educators, Tanya Maloney, Farima Pour-Khorshid, Christina Villarreal, moderated by Tracie Jones, who will illuminate how racial justice can be built into programs across the teacher education pipeline--from admission to induction. By examining the who, what, why, and how of racial justice teacher education, this event provides radical possibilities for transforming how teachers think about, and teach about, race in their classrooms. The book can be pre-ordered at Reading Writing and Racism.
