Time: 13:30 - 14:15
Young black lives mean something
How far-reaching is racism in the USA? What are its causes? And can the Black Lives Matter movement improve matters? Jason Reynolds writes poetry and novels, primarily for children and young adults. He depicts young African-Americans who suffer police violence, or what it is like to live after a brother has been shot. How do young black Americans recognised themselves in these stories, and why does Reynolds believe it is important to read about these issues? The author will be interviewed by pupils.
Topical book: Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You (2020) and Long Way Down (2020)
The event will be repeated at 14.30 in Auditoriet.
Both events are for invited lower secondary school pupils only (the events will be streamed).
