Conscious Curriculum & Conversations

Join the conversation with SAAACAM and Race Ed SA to raise your awareness of racism, unintended biases, colorism, classism, prejudices, and more. Each month, we will explore a different topic.

 

The month of February, we discuss Systemic Racism.

“Justice for black people will not flow into this society merely from court decisions nor from fountains of political oratory…White America must recognize that justice for black people cannot be achieved without radical changes in the structure of our society.”  – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Testament of Hope 1969

The curriculum is divided into age-appropriate sections with a myriad of fun yet thought-provoking and engaging activities.  At the beginning of each month, elementary students will engage in a virtual storytime.  Middle school and high school students will engage in a webinar with the RaceEd founders as hosts, a subject matter expert, and a licensed counselor.

Other topics include:

    • Stereotyping
    • Historic Eurocentric Education
    • Diasporic Education
    • White Privilege
    • Cultural Celebrations
    • Racial Pride/Black Dignity
    • Allyships
