Thanks to my very talented friend and colleague Katherine Bell, I learned that today the National Museum of African American History and Culture unveiled a new site called Talking About Race.
It looks very impressive, and includes a wealth of resources for specific use by educators.
Here’s how they describe it:
“The portal offers a wealth of resources to inform and guide discussions—videos, role-playing exercises, targeted questions and more, said Crew.” “We hope that people will use this site to become more comfortable about engaging in honest dialogue and self-reflection.”
Talking About Race builds upon decades of work by the museum’s educators. It is the result of extensive research, studies, consultations, and educational resources from these fields: history, education, psychology and human development. It includes published research from leading experts, activists, historians, and thought leaders on race, equity, and inclusion, including Brené Brown, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Robin DiAngelo, Julie Olsen Edwards, Jerry Kang, Ibram X Kendi, Enid Lee, Audre Lorde, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and Tim Wise.
I’m adding this info to New & Revised: A Collection Of Advice On Talking To Students About Race & Racism.
