Thanks and hope you find the resources helpful!

bending the arc towards justice

I have been fortunate in the past few years to get to share this material with schools, hospitals and non-profits.  I am happy to see how the conversations about race are increasing-and I am positive that we will be able to come together to create a more just and equitable society for all.  While I haven't been blogging- I have been out speaking. Many of the school events and other events I do aren't necessarily available to the public- but I have a few events coming this spring that will be open to everybody and they will be posted here.  I've also made some quick updates to the cite to add more of my articles, another video of a talk of mine and downloadable slides from my presentations.  I've also added more resources for teachers. If you have resources to share please send them my way- we are in community with each other and the more we work together the better.  Thanks for visiting and looking forward to continued work!

I'm looking forward to having an opportunity to learn and grow from this panels conversation about the re segregation of our schools.  If contact with each other is the main way of reducing bias we are in trouble.  We are getting further and further apart, and are beginning our children's experiences based on separation.  If we don't start here, when we will start?
