The discussions will begin on Thursday, September 21 at 6pm at the Ludington Center in downtown Albion (101 N. Superior St, Albion, MI 49224). They will continue every other Thursday at 6pm at the Naomi Room in the Albion District Library (501 S. Superior St, Albion, MI 49224). All of the dates: October 5, 19, November 2 and 16.

Please register for the Community Book Reading at amrcp.org/registration so that we can have enough free copies of the book for everyone.

Brief Description of the book from amazon.com:

In Those Kids, Our Schools, Shayla Reese Griffin examines patterns of racial interaction in a large, integrated high school and makes a powerful case for the frank conversations that educators could and should be having about race in schools.

Over three years, Griffin observed students, teachers, and administrators in a “post-racial” exurban high school in the Midwest. In its hallways, classrooms, lunchrooms, and staff meetings, she uncovered the disturbing ways in which racial tensions and prejudices persist and are reinforced. Students engaged in patterns of behavior that underscored racial hierarchies. Teachers—no matter how intellectually committed to equity and diversity—often lacked the skills, resources, or authority to address racial issues, while administrators failed to acknowledge racial tensions or recognize how school practices and policies perpetuated racial inequality.

This astute and thoughtful book offers a revealing glimpse into the world of young people struggling with the legacy of racism. More important, it highlights the disservice being done to all students in our schools when educators fail to critically interrogate issues of race. Griffin’s perceptive analysis illuminates the persistent influence of race in our education system and shows how—with appropriate support—teachers and students can develop the capacity to address racial issues and dynamics in schools in a frank and constructive way.

Shayla Reese Griffin is the diversity and school culture consultant for the Washtenaw (Michigan) Intermediate School District and director of Creating Culturally Proficient Communities, a five-year initiative to improve racial and economic justice in Ypsilanti Community Schools.

William Jelani Cobb is an associate professor of history and the director of the African Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut.
