I DO feel more prepared to engage in conversations about race. The videos and the PDF handouts will help me when I:
Ø Stop a colleague from saying a racist or sexist joke.
Ø Provide a new Standard for my teachers who are able to engage their students in a discussion about race. I will be able to show them how, like I use to, they are resting inappropriately on their white exceptionalism.
Ø Participate in a book club discussion about race that is sponsored by the local NAACP.
I realize these are small steps but they are a start!
