About

The Cambridge Friends School (CFS) annual Seminar Series kicks off on Monday, November 20 with a discussion and book signing for The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys. We are thrilled to welcome three of the book’s contributors: author, activist, and speaker Eddie Moore, Jr.; Debby Irving, author of Waking Up White and CFS Seminar Series alum; and CFS Middle School Dean Jack Hill.

The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys hopes to teach three main principles: How to develop learning environments that help Black boys feel a sense of belonging, nurturance, challenge, and love at school; How to change school culture so that Black boys can show up in the wholeness of their selves; How to overcome unconscious bias and forge authentic connections with your Black male students. This event will provide authentic conversation and resources for White educators and for anyone who works to challenge bias.

Please RSVP. Suggested donation is $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Books will be available for purchase with cash or check.
