Teaching for Black Lives grows directly out of the movement for Black lives. The authors recognize that anti-Black racism constructs Black people, and Blackness generally, as not counting as human life. Throughout this book, the authors provide resources and demonstrate how teachers connect curriculum to young people’s lives and root their concerns and daily experiences in what is taught and how classrooms are set up. They also highlight the hope and beauty of student activism and collective action.
