Dear students,

Join the School of Education for our 3rd book reading and discussion group. Culminating with the 90th Anniversary of James Baldwin’s birth, we have decided to delve into his seminal writings which articulate the complexity of race relations and culture in our society.  We have settled on reading his Fire Next Time and will meet to process the meaningfulness of this book first published over 50 years ago for our work to understand the ways our identities shape praxis.
