From preschool to higher education and everything in between, "Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School" focuses on the experiences Black and Brown students face as a direct result of the racism built into schools across the United States.

The overarching nonfiction narrative follows author Tiffany Jewell from early elementary school through her time at college, unpacking the history of systemic racism in the American educational system along the way. Throughout the book, other writers from around the world share a wide variety of personal narratives and stories based on their own school experiences.

"Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School" provides young folks with the context to think critically about and chart their own course through their current schooling — and any future schooling they may pursue. A true don’t miss event!

About the Author: Tiffany Jewell is a Black biracial writer, twin sister, first-generation American, cisgender mama, anti-bias antiracist (ABAR) educator and consultant. She is the author of the New York Times and Indie bestseller, "This Book Is Anti-Racist," a book for young folks and everyone to wake up, take action and do the work of becoming antiracist, as well as "The Antiracist Kid: A Book About Identity, Justice, and Activism" and the recently released "Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School" (2024).

Tiffany has been working with children and families for nearly two decades and has worked as a Montessori educator for 15 years. She enjoys exploring social justice with young folks, especially the history of racism and resistance, economic justice and socially and personally constructed identities. Tiffany enjoys working with educators and supporting them building strong, authentic communities in which every child can be seen and valued. She is the co-founder, alongside Britt Hawthorne, of ABARatSchool, an organization that strives to support educators and caregivers in their anti-bias anti-racist journeys. She also served as the president of the founding board of the national organization Montessori for Social Justice, seeing it through to completing nonprofit status and creating a strong mission to support and amplify Montessorians of the global majority across the country. Tiffany lives on the homeland of the Pocumtuc and the Nipmuck with her two young storytellers, husband and a turtle she’s had since she was nine years old.
