Seminar Full DescThis workshop (4 sessions) uses Angie Thomas' novel The Hate U Give as a catalyst for significant, relevant, and difficult conversations.

The content is designed to help teachers guide conversations with students about racism, racial identity, bias, and the way these forces shape every aspect of society. The workshop will also include discussion questions about the protests, police brutality, and media literacy.
