As English teachers, the responsibility often falls to us to hold difficult discussions with our students. For some of us, this means talking about what's happening in the news with our Black, Indigenous, and Students of Color. For other teachers, it means holding these difficult conversations with White students who have never experieced the realities of their BIPOC peers. In any case, we must both understand that our liberty is intertwined with that of our BIPOC brothers and sisters and that in order to change our society, we must start by identifying our own racism and implicit biases and re-educating ourselves. Then we must actively fight against all forms of racism.
