I’m ALWAYS in the middle of a book, ya’ll. ALWAYS. There are just so many good titles out there, how will I ever read them all? So, in addition to grad school textbooks, here’s what else I’ve read this year:
How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi
So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
We Got This.: Equity, Access, and the Quest to Be Who Our Students Need Us to Be by Cornelius Minor
So. All of these great titles are non-fiction. And they’re not geared to children. But if you interact with children, children of all colors and ethnicities and abilities and orientations, you need to read these titles. You’ll learn how to view the world as people who have been “othered” do and if you listen carefully, you’ll learn how to be better.
The Diversity Reading Challenge can also apply to non-fiction and adult titles as well, so count these in!
