I just sent this email to my school. Sometimes I feel nervous emailing all the employees but if I am saying that conversations like this are what I want to happen then I need to be okay with making them happen.
Tonight I am hosting an online talk by Jose Vilson an educator and activist in NYC. He has just written a book called “This is Not a Test.” That looks fantastic. It’s a new narrative on race, class, and education. If you are interested in attending you just go to this site tonight at 9pm. If not I still highly recommend his writing. His post on the Michael Dunn verdict is outstanding.
Hope to see some of you there.
