Our first community event, Reading Is Resistance Silent Book Club, is coming up on Tuesday, February 25 (6-8). Because my students and I are focusing on immigration and education this week in our learning, I wanted to share out some related resources that would be excellent Silent Book Club choices and also important to add to any reading list that focuses on anti-racist teaching and learning.
For teachers/parents/college students, An African American and Latinx History of the United States by Paul Ortíz is an important framing text that will ground you in the history you likely did not learn in school.
In our mini-showcase of reading suggestions today for young folx (and old folx alike), we showcase the following:
Dreamers by Yuli Morales
Two White Rabbits by Rafael Yockteng
All the Stars Denied by Guadalupe García McCall
Shame the Stars by Guadalupe García McCall
We also recommend this set of non-fiction young reader's editions.
Additional reads on the topic of the political border between Mexico and the U.S. and on immigration can be found at the Social Justice Books Project.
