Brave Beyond Words (Izzy B School): So You Want to Talk About Race


  • Isabella Bird Community School 2701 N. Lima Street Denver, CO 80238 United States (map)

At the special request of members of the Isabella Bird Community School, we are bringing our heartfelt examination of Ijeoma Oluo’s powerful book So You Want To Talk About Race to the school community. This will be a safe place for teachers, staff, and parents to explore the author’s solutions for addressing racial inequality. The Brave Coalition was founded in 2016 following hate graffiti at Izzy B, and we are excited to host a Brave Beyond Words book club at the school.

The book club will be held on three afternoon sessions from 3:30-5:00 pm: Wednesday May 8 (Chapters 1-6); Monday May 13 (Chapters 7-12); Wednesday May 20 (Chapters 13-17).

Individuals with a connection to the school may REGISTER HERE. There is no cost for this program, but participants will need to purchase the book in advance (find it on Amazon here). Registration direct link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8JV26GY
