Lowell School welcomes activist-authors Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., Jack Hill, and Vernā Myers for a discussion about the newly released book, The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys. Join us in a conversation of national importance around the book’s main premise: white women make up 65% of the teaching force in America and can play a critical role in developing nurturing and challenging learning environments that help Black boys feel a sense of belonging and love at school.

Books will be available for purchase, and a book signing will follow the discussion.

The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys (Corwin, 2018), edited by Eddie Moore Jr., Ali Michael, and Marguerite W. Penick-Parks, is a must-read resource that brings together research, activities, personal stories, and links to video interviews to help teachers rise to the challenge of making schools work for Black boys. But this book is not just for white women teaching Black boys. This is a resource for all educators and parents of Black boys who want to advocate for their sons.
