Read Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi and engage in a virtual conversation with local educators and students.
Register at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_o9rjg22sQaibd-1gNe7Xvw.
Reynolds (Look Both Ways) lends his signature flair to remixing Kendi’s award-winning Stamped from the Beginning into a powerful “not a history book” primer on the historical roots and present-day manifestations of antiblack racism in America. In five sections, Reynolds’s conversational text discusses the influential figures, movements, and events that have propagated racist ideas, beginning in 1415 with the publication of the infamous work that laid the groundwork for subsequent religious justifications of enslaving African peoples and continuing through the “war on drugs” and #BlackLivesMatter...Kendi and Reynolds’s volume is essential, meaningfully accessible reading. ---Publishers Weekly

Steve Farrar grew up in Medfield and experienced his first National Parks as an impressionable 14-year-old on the way to the 1969 National Boy Scout Jamboree in Idaho. The 5-day bus trip from Salt Lake City included stops in Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Glacier National Park, which sparked a fascination with natural beauty that has evolved into Steve’s life-long passion for visiting our National Parks. His adventures exploring 61 of the 62 parks include hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, scuba diving the coral reefs of the Virgin Islands, camping among the wolves on Isle Royale, scaling rock faces in Yosemite, and climbing to the summits of Mount Rainier and Denali.
