This is a book I highly recommend for teachers. Christopher Emdin writes about his own experience as a BIPOC student and teacher within a system is built to create educational clones. "Reality pedagogy" is an important key to teaching a trauma informed and multicultural classroom. Buy it from Amazon.
Michelle Alexander's book studies the mass incarceration of BIPOC after the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. It considers American history from its inception, the war on drugs, colourblindness, education, discrimination, and more. Buy it from Amazon.
