Jan 19, 2021 Season 1 Episode 11

The second episode in our Anti-Racism series made me nervous.

Lavinia is the most lovely person, but her role as Humanity Equity Advisor at the Toronto Catholic District School Board is to look at problems in the education system...and advise things that need to change.  I knew what she would say was going to challenge me to now go out and be brave enough to take and demand action.

Lavinia's experiences working for equity first as a lawyer--we discuss several cases that jarred me, big time-- and now in the education system, make her the perfect person to have this conversation with. She's smart, experienced, and articulate.

We do talk about one thing that teachers can do immediately: start your own Anti-Racism education. Below is a list of books that we discussed. Buy one and read it this week! That's your next step.

Why I'm No Longer Talking With White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge
White Fragility by Robin De Angelo
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man with Emmanuel Acho
The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
How to Be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi
