WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Memorial Library held a ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ panel discussion via Zoom on Monday, August 24, 2020.

Jennifer Bryson, Boston University Education faculty member; Melanie Patterson, Boutwell & Shawsheen Schools Media Specialist; and Brittany Tuttle, the WML’s Teen Librarian, discussed how to rethink the media our families consume through an antiracist lens, encouraging participants to:

  • Rethink the media our families consume, including books, movies, and TV shows.
  • Discuss how our identities shape our responses to equity in our community.
  • Investigate the concept of mirrors and windows in our children’s texts/media.
  • Review and discuss problematic media.
  • Discuss race and representation with your children.
  • You will use what you learned here to continue the antiracist work we’ve started.
