Virtual Community Conversation: Systemic Racism & Education
August 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In preparation for our rescheduled NEA Big Read of “Citizen: An American Lyric” by Claudia Rankine, Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts is hosting a series of free virtual community conversations relevant to ideas explored in the book. These 1.5-hour Zoom meetings give us a chance to explore issues Rankine addresses before taking a deep dive into the text this fall.
Save the date to join us Aug. 6 for the fourth in our series — this time a conversation about the effects of systemic racism on education facilitated by Jessica Fleischmann, a teacher at JC Wright Middle School in Madison who will offer insight on how best to teach Black history in predominantly white schools.
