Conversation about Race and Other Updates

June 28, 2020

Dear Families:

I wanted to share an important broadcast on WIQH 88.3, the CCHS radio station, happening this week.  The CCHS Intersections Club is a diverse group of CCHS students from Boston (via the METCO program), and the towns of Concord and Carlisle. Intersections club members highlight diversity and foster inclusion in our school community, and support one another in exploring, understanding and embracing how their social identities, (i.e. gender, sexuality, race, economic status/class, age, linguistic) intersect, and overlap with their classmates, faculty, and staff.  They recorded a discussion focused on:

  • The importance of diversity at CCHS
  • Racism in our community
  • Issues of systemic racism and racial injustice in the world

The show will air on:

  • Sunday at 6 pm
  • Tuesday at noon and 6 pm
  • Thursday at noon and 6 pm

Hearing student voices is critical so we hope you will join them.
