Friends School of Baltimore on Monday, January 22, at 6:30 pm, will welcome activist-authors Eddie Moore Jr., Debby Irving (Waking Up White, Elephant Room Press, 2014), Vernā Myers (What if I Say the Wrong Thing? 25 Habits for Culturally Effective People, American Bar Association, 2014), and Jack Hill, head of middle school, Cambridge Friends School, for a discussion about Dr. Moore’s newly released book, The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys.
Join us in conversation around the book’s main premise: That white women make up 65% of the teaching force in America and can play a critical role in developing nurturing and challenging learning environments that help black boys feel a sense of belonging and love at school. This free event will take place in the Forbush Auditorium (3A on the Campus Map) and is open to the public. Click here to register. For more information, contact Heidi Blalock.
