Teaching in the Classroom Post Trump

Thursday December 8, 7:00PM

@ Red Emma's

Is there conflict arising in your classroom, are there bias incidents or hate crimes happening in your schools, or are students or faculty feeling just fearful and not sure what to do? Baltimore's K12 teachers and area university professors discuss how they are approaching teaching now that the election is over. The event will feature Kim Mooney from Roland Park Elementary/Middle, Jesse Schneiderman from Frederick Douglass, and Dr. Kaye Whitehead from Loyola University. Dr. Jessica Shiller, from Towson University, will moderate. The event is co-sponsored by the Teachers Democracy Project and Towson University's social justice collective.

Now in its 19th year of publication, the Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is required reading for radicals, leftists, and all who support political prisoners and advocate the end of mass incarceration. The Certain Days calendar is filled with radical historical dates, and 12 thought-provoking articles and beautiful artwork each month throughout the year. All proceeds support prisoners and grassroots organizations. This is a must-have!

Certain Days 2020: Knitting Together the Struggles

The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal, Hamilton, New York and Baltimore, with two political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons: David Gilbert in New York and Xinachtli (s/n Alvaro Luna Hernandez) in Texas. We were happy to welcome founding members Herman Bell and Robert Seth Hayes home from prison in 2018.

A warm, wise, and urgent guide to parenting in uncertain times, from a longtime reporter on race, reproductive health, and politics.

In We Live for the We, first-time mother Dani McClain sets out to understand how to raise her daughter in what she, as a black woman, knows to be an unjust–even hostile–society. Black women are more likely to die during pregnancy or birth than any other race; black mothers must stand before television cameras telling the world that their slain children were human beings. What, then, is the best way to keep fear at bay and raise a child so she lives with dignity and joy?

McClain spoke with mothers on the frontlines of movements for social, political, and cultural change who are grappling with the same questions. Following a child’s development from infancy to the teenage years, We Live for the We touches on everything from the importance of creativity to building a mutually supportive community to navigating one’s relationship with power and authority. It is an essential handbook to help us imagine the society we build for the next generation.
