“We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.”
Art by Sandra Baron
Hi, I’m Sandra Baker Baron,
I’ve been aware of racism since I was raised in the South. From 1967-68, I taught English in New Orleans at an all-Black, inner-city school. I learned how my White preferences had given me many opportunities that my students and staff had never had.
My book, Bridge the Mississippi, is based on that inner-city experience and the adaptations I needed to embrace. The staff and students taught me ways to cross cultural lines. Elk Lake Publisher has offered me a contract on this story.
I re-enter the blogging world, seeking readers of all colors, who also regard concern for equality. Join me in becoming a voice to help unlock the invisible chains still on our Black brothers and sisters.
Join my reader list!
Stay tuned for the release of my new book!
