What It Means to be Anti-Racist from Jason Reynolds

Larry Ferlazzo has an incredible page of “RESOURCES TO HELP US PREDOMINANTLY WHITE TEACHERS TO REFLECT ON HOW RACE INFLUENCES OUR WORK.” Included on that page is this short video of Jason Reynolds that concisely explains how becoming an anti-racist is moving from passive witness to active involvement. As a White person, I know that it has been an adjustment for me to understand the delineation, and I think this could be very helpful for others. I will be adding it to my Wakelet of weekly anti-racist posts.
