As the most current events around racial injustice have unfolded in our country, my teacher mind has been hard at work. I have been trying to think about how I can make a deeper impact on my students and help them understand the importance of racial equality. I have lots of projects and lessons in mind, but one truly important tool I have is the power of words. Literature has the power to transform and inspire. I want my students to read stories of inspirational people who have changed our country and realize that they can be change agents, too. I want them to read about events in the past and today and realize that they want better for their fellow human beings. I teach in a diverse school and I want each and every one of our students to know their value and their worth. I know that one way that I can inspire them is with literature that will push their thinking and move their hearts. My hope is to set up this book display in my room and frequently update titles so students can see a wide variety of examples of how men, women, and children of all races and all ethnic backgrounds have positively impacted our world. I will use some of these books as read alouds with my fifth graders to spark discussion, as well as have my students read these books to younger students in our school and help share our message of love. I want to share these resources with our whole school and inspire them to help build a school collection of powerful books. Please consider donating to this project to give my students books that celebrate diversity and inspire them to make an impact!
