~Now leading conversations for 10 & 11 year olds, 12,13 & 14 year olds and for 14, 15 & 16 year olds.~ Ever pledge allegiance? Ever ponder the part where we say "one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all"? The irony of a nation built on the ideals of equality and self determination and race-based exploitation, terrorism and class distrust is not lost on young people. If fact, I have found that they have so many questions as they are deciding how to feel about...
Learners will understand the history and role of racism in America, how to avoid racist thinking and how to challenge racist ideas. Learners will learn language and framing ideas to help them talk about racism, how they feel about it and what they want to do about it. We are all about solutions here!
I HAD to study history at Hampton University (B.A) and U.S. History at Southern Methodist University (M.A. abt) because I found the complex topics and dynamic issues endlessly fascinating. My education allowed me to study questions of Race, Class and Gender extensively, topics that should ALWAYS figure prominently when understanding The United States. Teaching high school and college history felt more like a prize than a job as I loved sharing our nation's struggles and stories with young learners and challenging them to think critically. I have decades of experience doing this and excel at leading conversations about racism, race relations, and people. While I am no longer in the classroom I still find opportunities to guide people through the topics and timelines of America from time to time, and this is one of those times. Teaching this topic to young people gives me hope and brings me so much happiness- our children are amazing!

Race relations in America cannot be understood without understanding the violence that often comes with enforcing racist control. Learners should be prepared to view troubling images- although these images are not displayed without advanced warning. Parents should also be prepared to continue discussing these sensitive topics at home and are welcome to reach out to me for help with this as needed.
