One Book, One Hebron
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi.
Interested in making actionable change in our community? The One Book Committee welcomes you to join us in our quest to acknowledge the voices shared by students, past and present. Our goal is to ensure that future students feel supported and welcomed in our school community.
Our One Book will consist of three committees: Staff Committee, Student Committee, and Parent/Community Committee. These workgroups will participate in activities and workshops individually, as well as with the other committees. These events will revolve around the themes read in Stamped, as well as working towards goals shared by our community.
You can start now by purchasing Stamped online at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, or through IndieBound.org from your local independent bookstore such as Loyalty Bookstore.
Sign up below to join your respective committee:

This Ways to Take Action list is meant to serve two purposes: to give us all some ideas about what we can do to create change and to offer some resources to help us better understand the effects systematic racism has had on all of us. It is not intended to be all-encompassing, yet a starting point for those feeling bewildered about where to begin this work. To truly create change we must fully expose the underbelly of oppression and bias, be willing to have courageous and uncomfortable conversations, all while showing grace to ourselves and each other. Let's GO!
