19 Essential Books to Understand Race and Equity in School
by Isaiah McGee
Many educators have been asking what can I read to better understand race, racism, and its impact on schools and the classroom. In honor of Juneteenth, I compiled a list of 19 essential books that can help educators not only better understand the elusive, pervasive, and persistence impact of race on schools, but also provide them with skills to challenge and mitigate its influence and provide marginalized students, especially Black students, the best learning environment and experience.
Gives honest, clear, and constructive, and conversations about race and racism, how to deal with racial prejudices and biases, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
From a personalized viewpoint, Coates confronts the notion of race in America how it was systematically constructed and shaped American history which includes the subjugation of Black people
Uses research and psychological theory to explain the development of racial identity and the impact that has on racism and belonging.
