Sacramento City Unified School District is committed to a sustained journey of explicit and purposeful learning, reflection, and practice of eradicating systemic racism in our schools. While acknowledging there is no right path, we urge our community and educators to stay the course in having difficult conversations, even when it is uncomfortable.
The program recommends multiple resources, including the following books:
- Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor, by Layla F. Saad
- White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, by Robin DiAngelo
- So You Want to Talk About Race, by Ijeoma Oluo
