Children’s Slave Posters & A Mock Slave Auction in Progressive NJ

Shocked by  the slave auction signs drawn by children for an assignment at her child’s school, Ahadi Bugg-Levine warns that the liberal reputation of some New Jersey suburbs has not been earned.  Other work has to be done. “Living together does not eradicate our nation’s complex racial past. We have to talk openly about our histories so that we can find our commonalities, learn how to respect and appreciate our differences, and evolve so that internalized bias and privilege don’t harm others and undermine what we’re trying to build.
