Dignity and Justice for All: A Virtual Conference for Educators

March 24, 2021 Dignity and Justice for All: Stories of Protest, Resistance, and Change. Includes images of book covers

Join the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum for Dignity and Justice for All: Stories of Protest, Resistance, and Change. The Kennedy Library invites teachers of grades 3 – 8 and school librarians to this virtual conference on March 24, 2021.

Those who have experienced discrimination have taken great risks to demand dignity and justice. How can literature help students better understand historical and contemporary struggles for freedom and equality? How have people from underrepresented groups made their voices heard in social and political movements? How can stories of civic action empower young people to exercise their rights and take on responsibilities for working toward a better world?

Join keynote speaker Dr. Debbie Reese and award-winning authors Jabari AsimAnne Bausum, and Doreen Rappaport to discover both literature and strategies for helping young people create change in the world.
