Re:Verse Literary Conference and Festival this Weekend in NY


It’s not too late to still register for this conference. Visit http://reversefestival.com/08.htm for conference details.
My session is:
Session III: 3:45-5:00pm
Learning About Ourselves and Each Other: How Reading Diverse Text Promotes Tolerance and Boundary-Stretching
This workshop will engage participants in discussion and activity that identifies ways to engage urban youth in literary pursuits that include reading about and discussing literary texts by authors who are culturally different or write about characters who are different culturally in any way ranging from ethnicity and religion to nationality and gender.

Instructor: Khadijah Ali-Coleman

———-
I plan to present this workshop in a format that introduces participants to youth development principles and engages them in activities that highlight the significance of “processing” read material and its significance in shaping values and acceptance of others who may be different in any way. Hope to see you there!
