ONE BOOK-ONE SCHOOL
For the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, the PTSA, Parents of African American Students (PAAS), and Mt. Hebron staff are collaborating to bring a course of study and informed action on racism and anti-racism to our own community called MHHS FIRST One Book-One School.
One Book-One School
is a movement designed to encourage an entire school community (staff, students, parents and the greater Mt. Hebron community) to read one book and participate in ongoing activities throughout the year. As a part of building informed knowledge to create informed action, we will be studying “Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism and You” by Maryland's own Jason Reynolds, author of a Remix of the National-Book-Award-Winning book “Stamped From the Beginning” by Ibram X. Kendi.
If interested, please sign up here so we can contact you about related activities. The book is available in hardcopy, on audible, and at the library (get on the waiting list now!). Consider purchasing your own copy from this list of black-owned bookstores: https://lithub.com/you-can-order-today-from-these-black-owned-independent-bookstores/.
The PTSA has 10 copies to loan out. Please email Caroline Bodziak at email@example.com to arrange pick up. If needed PTSA can deliver the book to you.
Reading this powerful interdisciplinary book together will be a great way to inform our action as a community. Our journey is only just beginning. PTSA/PAAS will send out updates as they develop.
