What do Teacher Librarians need to know about racism? How can Teacher Librarians work to oppose racism? This session, based on Dr Ibram X Kendi's book, How to be an Antiracist, will address these questions and provide you with time to reflect. It is not a requirement to read the book to attend.
An open mind and willingness to reflect.
