Margie’s Books is supporting middle school social studies teachers at W.A. Perry Middle School in Columbia, SC. The social studies teachers are infusing their social studies classrooms with literature and poetry that is culturally sustaining, pro-Black and allows for the educational concept of “mirrors and windows.” This concept is where students see themselves positively and powerfully reflected in what they read, and they also access windows into the lives of others—who are different from them. Thank you to Julia Dawson, who is leading the book project.
