For Black History Month, we're pleased to present the first of a two-part series, taken from a chapter of teacher and SEED staff member Judy Logan's book Teaching Stories. In it, she asks, "Just what is a multicultural and gender-inclusive curriculum?" and answers from her own experience. Please come back tomorrow to read the second half.

Halloween can be a scary time for those committed to equity. From racist costumes to ones reflecting gender stereotypes, to the fact that the holiday has Christian and pagan roots and may exclude others, the holiday raises many questions of how and if to observe.
A key SEED practice is using personal stories to illuminate systems of inequality and oppression. I was reminded of that this past week as my family celebrated Passover, the Jewish holiday in which we remember gaining our freedom from slavery in Egypt â and when we encourage ourselves to keep working for the freedom of all people even today.
