How an Elementary School Lesson on Black Lives Matter Divided a Town

podcast November 12, 2020 1


Background
share close

After the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha WI, Melissa Statz’s students in Burlington, WI began to talk about the protests that followed. They lived about 30 minutes away from Kenosha and many had family there.

Melissa, a social studies teacher, thought it was a good time to talk about racism, Black Lives Matter and why so many people were hurt and upset. What happened hours after she taught the lesson to her fourth grade class was more than she ever expected.

Listen to her tell her story.
