Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "A Defiant Muhammad Ali Was Cherished By Black Men" by Karen Grigsby Bates.

Muhammad Ali’s legacy as a symbol of courage and a challenge to the status quo is remembered in light of his passing.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Justice, Freedom & Equality, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?", "What is fair?", and "How do people create change?"
