Classroom Library...

I just moved from Brooklyn, NY to Montgomery, AL. I wanted to build a library for my new (high school) classroom in Montgomery, but I didn't just want to fill it with teen novels―I wanted to build a library of books with a wide range of diverse voices and perspectives that counter the imperialist, white-supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal American perspective. This was the list I created.

Tjp "I wanted to build a library of books with a wide range of diverse voices and perspectives that counter the imperialist, white-supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal American perspective."

Marone a mi! I am embarrassed for you since you don't have the sense to be embarrassed for yourself. The book is called "Losing the Race" by Professor John McWhorter. Read it, smarten up and get back into the "race".

Erika This is really cool and makes my heart happy. Has everything been bought already? I see only one Octavia E. Butler book. :)
