Description: UNO students will partner with Katrina Jacobberger’s class at Norris Middle School to create an Anti-Racist Reading List for Middle School youth. This list will potentially be used by OPS as a resource for the district. With our current climate, this project couldn’t come at a better time. Students will build connections with Middle School students and assist them in exploring books that will help educate and challenge students their age. This will allow students the opportunity to learn more about anti-racism and how that could look in a school setting.
