Why I Rode: Henry Schwarzschild | Breach of Peace
"I do not think that my participation in the Freedom Rides made an appreciable difference to the inevitably successful outcome of this struggle. Nor did I expect it to heal the wounds of which the white majority has for decades inflicted on the Negro. I went to the South in inadequate obedience to the Biblical demand “to do justly.” I went as Jew who remembers the slavery of our forefathers in Egypt and who wants to obey the injunction to consider himself personally liberated from Egyptian slavery. I went as a Jew in response to the prophetic question “Are ye not as the children of the Ethiopians to me, O children of Israel? said the Lord.” My participation in the Freedom Rides was an act of faith in the validity of a moral act. I went because I needed to go." (via Eric Etheridge)

The lost children of Katrina - The Hechinger Report
You don't begin to understand the impact of Hurricane Katrina until you read this article—a fantastic and devastating piece of investigative journalism. "An untold number of kids — probably numbering in the tens of thousands — missed weeks, months, even years of school after Katrina. Only now, a decade later, are advocates and researchers beginning to grasp the lasting effects of this post-storm duress. Increasingly, they believe the same lower-income teens who waded through the city’s floodwaters and spent several rootless years afterward may now be driving a surging need for GED programs and entry-level job training programs in the city. It’s no coincidence, they say, that Louisiana has the nation’s highest rate of young adults not in school or working.... "In justifying the state takeover of the schools, which would soon be handed over to charter-school operators, Blanco assumed that most evacuee children had landed in superior schools outside of New Orleans. “Parents have new expectations for what schools should be and what they should provide,” she said. 'These families will only return home when we can meet these new, and higher, expectations.' "Few imagined that the education of so many evacuee children would be disrupted for so long."

Peace Parsha: A person is obligated to see themselves as if they had left Egypt - Americans for Peace Now
"We bring the fact of our liberation to the table and say: Just as we were liberated, so too, you can, should, and will be liberated. Whether you are an undocumented immigrant living in the shadows, a gay teenager living in the closet, or a Palestinian living under occupation, you can, should, and will be liberated. "The lesson of Passover, the lesson that we are commanded to take with us from our history in ancient Egypt, is that power structures are not permanent, those who are marginal today will not necessarily be marginal tomorrow, and if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem."

Like all A-Z books, this one illustrates the alphabet—but instead of “apple,” A is for Angela—as in Angela Davis, the iconic political activist. B is for Billie Jean King, who shattered the glass ceiling of sports; C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy; D is for Dolores Huerta, who organized farmworkers; and E is for Ella Baker, who mentored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and helped shape the Civil Rights movement.

35 Books Boys of All Ages Will LOVE!
When I was a middle school English teacher, I realized that getting some boys to read was like pushing a gigantic bolder uphill. I could do it, but I’d be tired and worn out in the end. Then it hit me, boys—like everybody else—will read books as long as they’re interesting and relatable. Duh!


Too often the books our boys are asked to read in school have nothing to do with their lives, or are just downright boring. Books about kids on farms? Psh! Novels about kids in 18th Century America? Uh, NO! Books about ruthless kings who conquered faraway lands in middle England? Hmm….maybe.

Once I realized that my students would read as long as they could to see themselves in books and relate to the stories (or just be straight up entertained), then the old notion that boys don’t like to read quickly fell away.

During my 6 years in the classroom (and 8+ years as a mom), I’ve built up quite a library of books brown boys actually enjoy.
