Join us for the launch of "Black Lives Matter at School: An Uprising for Education Justice", an essential collection of essays, interviews, poems, resolutions, and more from educators, students, and activists who have been building the Black Lives Matter at School movement across the country, including a foreword by Opal Tometi.

“Black Lives Matter at School is an essential resource for all those seeking to build an antiracist school system." —Ibram Kendi

“Black Lives Matter at School centers the humanity of our children. It is a sharp rebuke of white supremacy—the very thing that interrupts the healthy development of Black youth. School communities must affirm Black lives. This book is essential. Period.” — Stacy Davis Gates, Vice President Chicago Teachers Union

"There is no easy way to talk about the complexities of race facing our school system in America—but we have to talk about it if we are ever going to achieve the schools our children deserve. Black Lives Matter at School is a playbook for undoing institutional racism in the education system. — Michael Bennett, NFL Super Bowl champion and author
