One Book One Ramona
This summer, the entire Ramona community has been reading Ijeoma Oluo’s “So You Want to Talk about Race”. Faculty, staff, and students will all have a chance to come together in the fall to discuss the book’s big questions about race, justice, and your responsibilities to make the world a more equitable place. The book will be addressed through a school assembly, service project, and in-class discussions. Hope you’ve read it!
