Change the Narrative


Change the Narrative: How to Foster an Antiracist Culture in Your School
by Henry J. Turner & Kathy Lopes

At the height of the pandemic and social unrest, Kathy Lopes and Henry J. Turner, a director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and a high school principal, collaborated to develop a guide to assist educators and school leaders in fostering a school culture that embraces all.


By weaving their professional experiences and their personal stories, they connect the reader to the importance of consistent routines, ongoing learning, and structural changes that will help bring the change you are seeking. Through the lens and actions of antiracism, Change the Narrative provides a pathway for school administrators, leaders, and change agents who want to put into action the values of antiracism in their school community every day.
