VIEW Book Discussion: Between the World and Me

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is designated for discussing  Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between the World and Me, the National Book Award winning non-fiction text that addresses the mechanisms of institutional racism. In this book, Coates uses the form of a letter written to his son about the realities of being Black in America and infuses that letter with personal reflection on his own experiences. 

This session will be facilitated by members of the Burlington High School VIEW (Valuing and Inspiring Equity in our World) Committee. Through discussion of Between the World and Me, VIEW hopes to initiate important conversations among our faculty and raise equity consciousness in our schools. 

Although no homework can be required for professional development, participants in this session will benefit from having read the book before attending. If you are considering what books to add to your summer reading list, we recommend Between the World and Me.
