This year, like last year, I'm wondering what to teach my students about Dr. King.  And next month, I'll wonder what to teach and discuss with them about black history.  Some of the children's books I've seen about Dr. King don't mention a single thing about race or racism. And those that do tackle racism talk about it only as a thing of the past.  As a white teacher, with all students of color, I never know the right tone to take or the right things to say.  But I'll be trying, and I hope my fellow educators will be too.

In the meantime, check out this collection of photos from #ReclaimMLK events across the country.
