Special Guest and Author Tiffany Jewell: The History We Carry With Us Online

Through the use of a slide presentation and storytelling, author of This Book Is Anti-Racist, Tiffany Jewell, will share a brief history of racism and anti-racism in the United States. Knowing our history will help us to understand why racism exists and how we can become better ancestors and work together to dismantle it. For teens in grades 6 - 12.
