About the curriculum guide: The title of this guide gives a nod to the one of the greatest poets of the Twentieth Century. ‘Til the White Day is Done is a line from the 1926 poem Dream Variation’s by Langston Hughes. In the daytime universe of the poem the narrator dreams of flinging his arms wide in the face of the sun—an act of protest and resistance, of joy and celebration. ‘Til the White Day Is Done represents a commitment to end oppression in all forms- to eliminate the current “White Day.” White people are the world’s minority, yet white supremacy and racism are the scaffolding on which the American political and socioeconomic systems are built. This guide adds the new millennium piece of making sure the important elements of love and liberation are included in all conversations about race. This book was conceived by educator-activists JLove Calderon and Marcella Runell Hall in an effort to put action steps behind anti-racist rhetoric, in a move toward being truly and unapologetically pro-liberation–for everyone.
Within the pages you will find love letters written to educators by some of the leading voices on contemporary issues of race and racism. There are also over twenty lesson plans, which range from the social construction of race, to the racialization of social media, to the prison industrial complex. This book is meant to catapult us to action, prompt dialogue, stimulate our minds and hearts, and provide educators with profound yet practical tools for creating social justice.
