This recorded edWebinar features Frederick Joseph, activist and author of The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person, who writes from the perspective of a friend, offering candid reflections on his own experiences with racism and conversations with prominent artists and activists about theirs—creating an essential read for white people who are committed anti-racists and those newly come to the cause of racial justice. The conversation includes artist Jelani Alladin and David Cox, Creative Marketing Writer/Producer at HBO, both “A Better Chance” alumni, who will discuss ways educators and schools can promote anti-racism in their learning communities. We are very excited to bring them together here in what we know will be an important and powerful conversation.
