This Saturday is the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down racial segregation in schools. That was a vital moment in the history of racial justice, but did not necessarily lead to schools offering a multiculturally equitable education for all students. SEED Leader Bernadette Anand reflects below on how, 20 years after her town's board of education was told to integrate its schools, her English department used SEED to help create "a change from race-separated levels of grouping to a heterogeneously textured World Literature ninth grade course."
This week, in our series of 20 questions that SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh answered about SEED for the Wellesley Centers for Women's Research & Action Report, she talks about how teachers can create change even within the limitations of set curricula and booklists.
Watch SEED leaders from different racial and ethnic backgrounds talk about some of the ways in which SEED has helped them better understand privilege and systemic racism, create more inclusive curricula, and be good allies.
