BLACK LIVES MATTER: Reading & Teaching for Racial Justice with Dr. Duchess Harris

BLACK LIVES MATTER: Reading & Teaching for Racial Justice with Dr. Duchess Harris

Sponsored by the St. Kate's Master of Library & Information Science program.

Tuesday, October 4 at 7:00pm
Recital Hall, St. Catherine University
2004 Randolph Avenue. St. Paul, MN

In 2015, Dr. Duchess Harris and Sue Bradford Edwards co-authored a book titled Black Lives Matter for young readers. Given the ongoing violence against black lives, and the hope that young people might create a different future, we must provide spaces to have conversations about why Black Lives Matter. Reading is one way to open the conversation.

Dr. Harris will share about this book, and also address how educators can prepare students to lead and influence in a world fraught with racial tension. Please join us for a conversation about reading and teaching in an era of #BlackLivesMatter.

This free event is co-sponsored by St. Kate’s Office of Endowed Chairs for Mission and is part of St. Kate’s One Read For Racial Justice initiative.

If you need an accommodation to attend, please contact St. Kate’s O’Neill Center at least 48 hours in advance at oneill_center@stkate.edu. Books will be available for sale. Contact: Dr. Sarah Park Dahlen (spark@stkate.edu).
