Grammar Connect: Webinar with Dr. Rachel Zellars
We're thrilled to announce the next phase of our Grammar Lemonade Project: Grammar Connect! Through this platform, we will continue to engage and bring the Grammar community together in positive and uplifting ways through meaningful monthly initiatives.
Our first initiative was a webinar that took place on November 17 via Zoom. The topic of the webinar was "How to talk to your kids about race and racism" and was led by Dr. Rachel Zellars, a Grammar parent, lawyer and professor at Saint Mary's University in the Department of Social Justice and Community Studies.
Dr. Zellars' research focuses on the history of slavery in the Maritimes and the lives of Black enslaved women. As a community organizer, she is a lifelong student of transformative justice, and recently co-founder of The African Nova Scotian Freedom School and co-founder of BLM Solidarity Fund, which has raised over $300,00 since March for community members in need. She is also a nationally recognized expert on implicit bias and consults for a number of federal agencies. Most importantly, she is mother to Ade, Zora, and Sade.
