“Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.” – Congressman & civil rights activist John Lewis
Not only are books fun, but some stories can also help us learn how to think about injustice, use our voices–and be good troublemakers! Join Tanvi and Trinity to chat about Stamped (For Kids) by Jason Reynolds.
RACE. Uh-oh. The R-word.
But actually talking about race is one of the most important things to learn how to do.
Adapted from the groundbreaking bestseller Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, this book takes readers on a journey from present to past and back again. Kids will discover where racist ideas came from, identify how they impact America today, and meet those who have fought racism with antiracism. Along the way, they’ll learn how to identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their own lives.
Please don’t let financial hardship be a barrier! Let us know if you need help purchasing your copy. The Good Trouble Jr. Book Club is for students who have completed grades 3 – 5. Snacks will be provided.
Registration is required to participate in the Good Trouble Jr. book club. Seats are limited to 8 participants; save your seat today!
