The Committee For Racial Justice (CRJ) March 6th workshop will feature the award winning author, Brendan Kiely, who will introduce us to his latest book entitled The Other Talk : Reckoning with Our White Privilege. We expect to begin the conversation with middle and high school students engaging with this gifted author. Their parents, teachers, and anyone who wants to be a better antiracist will also have time to talk with Brendan in a Q & A.
We’ve heard about “the talk” that Black families have with their children – the honest talk about survival in a racist world. In this instantly readable & deeply honest account of his own life, Brendan lets readers take the journey with him into his own evolving understanding of his white privilege and enables them to see why introducing young people to the concepts of racial injustice and allyship is so vital.
Brendan is also the New York Times best selling author (with Jason Reynolds) of All American Boys and several other well received books for young adults. He is a former high school teacher who is now on the Faculty of the Solstice Low-Residency MFA program.
This book can spark many meaningful conversations among middle schoolers & high school students and their parents. You don’t need to have read it to enjoy meeting and learning from this engaging young author.
Don’t wait until the last minute to register for this zoom meeting that you won’t want to have missed.
