Ingrained, systemic racism is being revealed and yet many white people have been unable or unwilling to talk about it. I highly encourage anyone who leads storytimes at their library to consider adding this (quick) read to their upcoming professional development plans. For the development of more advanced racial awareness in your organisation, a formal training package is recommended. But it is not an in-depth exploration of what race is and how it affects people's lives and stories. As Julius Lester points out, it is only when we allow ourselves to delve deeper into each other's character, asking questions about mutual likes and dislikes, about where we were born and the pictures formed by our own personal histories, that we can begin to truly know each other and bridge the illusory gaps that seem to separate us.

This wonderful book should be a first choice for all collections and is strongly recommended as a springboard for discussions about differences. Author/narrator Julius Lester addresses his readers and explores the concept of racism and how people view and treat each other.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Pause, reflect, reframe: Deep discussions on co-creating a decolonial approach for an antiracist framework in occupational therapy Ahmed-Landeryou, M.

She has recently left the NHS to focus on providing culturally competent therapy and supervision in both the public and private sector. This isn't a deep dive into the issue of racism but it is a good place to start introducing the concept in an engaging way.

Lester joined the faculty of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst in 1971 where he is presently a full professor in the Judaic and Near Eastern Studies Department, and adjunct professor in the English and History departments. It was published in 2005, when I was 12 years old, and I can definitely say this kind of colourblindness is something that was prominent then and it took a lot of unlearning for me personally. This book was much more in depth with diversity than the first as it uses real life experiences to emphasize the realities of diversity. American society developed the notion of race early in its formation to justify its new economic system of capitalism, which depended on the institution of forced labor, especially the enslavement of African peoples. Julius Lester never follows the beaten trail in his writings; he always challenges and pushes us forward into new experiences, like those in this book.Improving Inclusive Leadership through ExCo and BAME staff Reciprocal Mentoring: spotlight stories on the experiences of BAME mentors and White mentors. This is a great question at the end because it lets the children reflect on what they just read and learn that people should not judge others based on their skin color or anything of that sort.

Our student and staff toolkits offer know-how such as context, definitions, and issues at play, practical measures and tactics at hand that will help to develop a much needed anti-racist culture at UCL. It Stops With Me acknowledges Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and pays respect to Elders, past, present and future.They already know that popular storytimes can be an effective way to increase community representation and belonging at the library. She takes time to outline the ways in which equity, diversity, and inclusion can give value to a storytime . Lester's poignant picture book helps children learn, grow, discuss, and begin to create a future that resolves differences. I also like the author’s idea in which if a person is stripped down to the bone, we would not be able to tell anyone apart.
