¡Hola a todos! Winter break is about to start, so this is is my last post for this year. It is an honor for me to share all of these resources. I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings to all of us. I hope the coming holidays bring you peace, happiness, serenity, and excitement.
– Our Facebook friends Latinos in Kid Lit shared Creating a Diverse Book Legacy: Interview with Culture Chest Founder. “We are a humble startup with big dreams of promoting culture through books, toys, and other avenues.”
— For those of you who have been teaching Afro-Mexican content in your class, Remezcla shared the piece, These Afro-Mexican Women Learned the Dances of Their Ancestors Through YouTube. “A 2015 census identified 1.5 million Afro-Mexicans for the first time – an important step toward acknowledging all races and ethnicities that make up Mexico.”
–Here is some advice on Racism, Sexism, And Third Graders, compliments of our friends We Need Diverse Books on Facebook. “For the first time ever, I didn’t have to tell anyone to stop talking out of turn or to come back to the group; they were more engaged in this discussion than anything else we had done all year.
–For those who teach art, Cultura shared Frida reinterpretada. “El periodismo necesita inversión. Comparte este artículo utilizando los íconos que aparecen en la página. La reproducción de este contenido sin autorización previa está prohibida.”
