ARRK October Discussion
Discussion of Chapter 1 from Beverly Daniel Tatums’
Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?
4-5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20
AARK Meeting space (MS Teams)
Discussion Leader: Lisa Brock
Developed through collaboration with K-College library staff and the Kalamazoo College Inclusive Excellence (KCIE) leadership team, the AntiRacism Reading Knook (#ARRK) initiative seeks to facilitate dialogue on antiracism and engagement with the KCIE #Reading for Change book collection. Purchase of and greater access to the collection has been funded through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) grant. ARRK aims to:
- reduce the barrier to entry into reading antiracism books,
- identify campus facilitators with experience teaching and/or disciplinary expertise to provide context and guide discussion,
- foster broader relationships among faculty and staff, and thus
- build greater capacity for an inclusive campus through sustained and focused engagement with shared texts.
Please come virtually to the second event of #ARRK. Lisa Brock will lead discussion on Chapter 1 from Beverly Daniel Tatum’s Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? Mark your calendars for 4-5 pm on Tuesday, October 20 at #AARK Meeting space (MS Teams).
In August, KCIE distributed copies of Tatum’s book to faculty and staff. If you did not receive a book, contact Regina Stevens-Truss (Regina.Stevens-Truss@kzoo.edu) or Bruce Mills (Bruce.Mills@kzoo.edu).
