15809: NCCAT Online Book Talk: Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man - VIRTUAL

For grades K-12. This is a virtual program.

Thank you for joining us for our second book talk this year! NCCAT Online offers NC educators a place to come and share ideas while reading a book together to help us learn and grow in our personal and professional lives.

Our second book will be Emmanuel Acho s Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. Acho states that the only way to cure our nation of racism is by talking to one another. Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man connects Acho s own experience with race and racism with the lessons of history, culture, and the wisdom of other black voices. This book helps readers have conversations to increase their understanding and help eradicate racism.

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated, "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." Join us on our book study as we listen, learn, and grow together.

This online self-paced course will begin on April 1st and will run until June 11th. There will be three Zoom meetings, where participants can come together face-to-face to discuss the book, ask questions, and read-aloud important sections. For those who cannot meet, all of the information is in the course broken down into modules.

The Zoom meetings are for an hour and are informal and offer a safe space for participants to participate. The dates for the Zoom sessions are:

April 6th @ 4 P.M.
April 20th @ 4 P.M.
May 4th @ 4 P.M.

If participants post to all discussion boards and submit all reflection assignments, they will earn 20 contact hours.

You can purchase the book online, from independent bookstores, or check it out from your local library. There are electronic and audio versions available as well.
