Systemic Racism in the American Education System with Tiffany Jewell - Online Author Talk

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Description

Join us as #1 New York Times bestselling author Tiffany Jewell highlights the inequities Black and Brown students face from preschool through college as she presents lessons and knowledge from her new book Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School.

From preschool to higher education and everything in between, Jewell's book focuses on the experiences Black and Brown students face as a direct result of the racism built into schools across the United States.

The narrative follows the author from early elementary school through her time at college, unpacking the history of systemic racism in the American educational system along the way. Throughout the book, other writers of the global majority share a wide variety of personal narratives and stories based on their own school experiences.

Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School provides young folks with the context to think critically about and chart their own course through their current schooling—and any future schooling they may pursue.

About the Author: Tiffany Jewell is a Black biracial writer, twin sister, first-generation American, cisgender mama, anti-bias antiracist (ABAR) educator, and consultant. She is the author of This Book Is Anti-racist, as well as The Antiracist Kid: A Book About Identity, Justice, and Activism.
