The titles selected focus on African American literature. Almost 50% of our school population is African American, significantly higher than the total of novels with African American main characters. The district Office of Equity Affairs states "We train teachers, administrators, and support staff on cultural responsiveness and leadership practices that promote equity in schools. Our training includes honest dialogue about the systemic impact of race and racism on student achievement.” A recent training on our campus from the OEA brought to light the disparity in our school. Using Follett’s collection development tool, a highly respected method of selecting reading material, titles were chosen based on high interest and main characters that are African American. The books are specifically geared to middle school students and young adult readers. Upon the completion of this grant the titles will immediately be on display for student checkout. They will also be broadly displayed in February as we celebrate Black History Month.
