Dr. Luvelle Brown, Superintendent of Ithaca City School District, moderated a panel discussion with Jason Reynolds and educational leaders to explore how the book Stamped can be used in schools and communities to cultivate an understanding and action to disrupt systemic racism. Our panelists were Dr. Shirley Collado, President of Ithaca College; Dr. Sean Eversley Bradwell, Assistant Professor at Ithaca College and Vice President of the ICSD Board; and Ms. Ayisha Fullerton, Principal of Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem, NY, a partner school of the Department of Education.
