Teaching for Black Lives: The Book

Black students’ minds and bodies are under attack. We’re fighting back.

Teaching for Black Lives grows directly out of the movement for Black lives. We recognize that anti-Black racism constructs Black people, and Blackness generally, as not counting as human life. Throughout this book, we demonstrate how teachers connect curriculum to young people’s lives and root their concerns and daily experiences in what is taught and how classrooms are organized. We also highlight the hope and beauty of student activism and collective action.
