With Leader Dr. Richard Koral

Even among those who are mindful of the subtle racial, ethnic, and class distinctions that persist in society, we are all participants in a larger societal structure that perpetuates injustices. We will read and discuss books and articles that explore the features of systemic racism and classism in America to better understand the ways in which society can recreate itself to permit all people to flourish and thrive.

We'll be discussing Unfinished Business: Closing the Racial Achievement Gap in Our Schools By Pedro Noguera and Jean Wing (eds), a series of essays describing the experience in Berkley High School, a highly integrated school.

“Unfinished Business brings to light the hidden inequities of schools–where cultural attitudes, academic tracking, curricular access, and after-school activities serve as sorting mechanisms that set students on paths of success or failure.”
