So You Want To Talk About Race
Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Anti-Racism Book Club Meeting.
We'll be discussing, "So You Want To Talk About Race?", by Ijeoma Oluo.
  • Date:  Tuesday, May 17th
  • Time:  3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
  • Where:  Pen High Library
"In this breakout book, Ijeoma Oluo explores the complex reality of today's racial landscape--from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement--offering straightforward clarity that readers need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide

In So You Want to Talk About Race, Editor at Large of The Establishment Ijeoma Oluo offers a contemporary, accessible take on the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on such issues as privilege, police brutality, intersectionality, micro-aggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the "N" word. Perfectly positioned to bridge the gap between people of color and white Americans struggling with race complexities, Oluo answers the questions readers don't dare ask, and explains the concepts that continue to elude everyday Americans.

Oluo is an exceptional writer with a rare ability to be straightforward, funny, and effective in her coverage of sensitive, hyper-charged issues in America. Her messages are passionate but finely tuned, and crystalize ideas that would otherwise be vague by empowering them with aha-moment clarity. Her writing brings to mind voices like Ta-Nehisi Coates and Roxane Gay, and Jessica Valenti in Full Frontal Feminism, and a young Gloria Naylor, particularly in Naylor's seminal essay "The Meaning of a Word."

SD67 Anti-Racism Learning Series



School District 67 is excited to present our Anti-Racism Learning Series.  


In partnership with the South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services, the Anti-Racism learning series are specifically designed to create respectful spaces for any and all interested school district employees. In other words, we hope teachers, counselors, support staff, clerical, custodial, administrators, trustees, and senior management become involved in this wonderful learning opportunity.


Explore topics like:

  • implicit bias, privilege, colonialism
  • systemic racism & racial inequities
  • how to be an anti-racist & ally


Each session will have specific learning intentions that build and strengthen participants understanding of topics relating to Anti-Racism, and ZOOM links will be emailed to all SD67 staff prior to each session.
