The Anti-Racist Educator Reads podcast has been nominated for a 2021 Canadian Podcast Award. The podcast is “a broadcast for educators who understand that we need to be talking about race and racism in schools now.”
The podcast is hosted by Colinda Clyne, the Upper Grand District School Board’s Indigenous Education Curriculum Lead. Each week, Colinda invites educational leaders to be in conversation about a great book on racial justice, discussing historical contexts and connections to education.
Past books discussed include Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer, We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom by Bettina L. Love, and Policing Black Lives by Robyn Maynard.
The podcast is currently discussing Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools by Monique W. Morris.
