Order your book for ISTA book club

The ISTA Minority Affairs Committee (MAC) invites you to participate in the Racial Justice Book Club. The book club builds on MAC’s professional development and learning opportunities offered to members. ISTA and MAC are dedicated to engaging educators of color, supporting kids from all backgrounds and building equity in public education.

Our first book is from ISTA member Dawn Knight. Knight’s Race and Football in America: The Life and Legacy of George Taliaferro profiles Taliaferro, the first African American football player drafted by the NFL and the first to play quarterback.

We’ve partnered with two Black-owned independent bookstores who are stocking the title – Brain Lair Books in South Bend and Beyond Barcodes in Kokomo.
