Accountability, Segregation, and Teaching American Slavery

Hi Friends!
Good things happening! I recently finished updating the Resource List — please check it out!
(1) Leslie Mac wrote in Black Youth Project about different types of accountability, which was really eye opening to me.
(2) Southern Poverty Law Center focused their Weekend Read on “Segregation in our public schools” and noted the importance of Brown v. Board of Education then and now.
(3) One of our group members shared a video about Jonathan Metzl’s Dying of Whiteness, also interviewed by Sean Illing at Vox.
(4) One of our group members shared this article from The Seattle Times by Katharine Strange called “It’s in the hands of white parents to dismantle segregation.”
(5) Glenn Wiebe from Tech & Learning wrote about “How to Teach American Slavery — from Teaching Tolerance”
(6) The New York State Bar Association released a report about the connection between school suspensions and what is sometimes known as the “school to prison pipeline.”
(1) A reminder if you’re in Arlington that there are two voting opportunities coming up in early June.- The School Board Caucus happens over three voting dates (June 4, 6, and 8) to determine the candidate the Democratic party will endorse.- June 11 is the election for Commonwealth’s Attorney, Senate of Virginia 31st District, and House of Delegates 49th District seats.
(2) This is a bit distant from Arlington, but SURJ 3A in Maryland is hosting a White Ally Toolkit Workshop on May 21 by Dr. David Campt. Check out the sites even if you can’t attend!
(3) Greater Greater Washington and We Act Radio are hosting an event called “Locked In: Transportation Equity East of the Anacostia” on June 3.
(4) The “2019 Leckey Forum: Planning for Equity and Affordability” will be on June 5.
