On Reading Silence

By Darnell Fine

On Reading Silence

 


To evoke the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Continuing to borrow from King, as international educators, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” So what does our tacit silence to issues of racial injustice reveal about our internationally-mindedness and global connectedness? 


Darnell Fine is an instructional coach and social justice facilitator whose work focuses on questions of power and applying radical imagination to the profession of teaching.

Hi Darnell, I hope you are well.

I am working with some International Baccalaureate students who are running a "Decolonise the IB curriculum" campaign. They are students from different international schools. I would like to connect them with an expert on social justice, and ensure this spotlight on racial inequity is not just a trend.

If you have a moment to meet with us/can direct us to other expert, we would be grateful.
