Book Club: A Place to Belong by Amber O'Neal Johnston

A Place to Belong
Celebrating Diversity and Kinship in the Home and Beyond
Live Book Club Discussion with Amber O’Neal Johnston 

A guide for families of all backgrounds to celebrate cultural heritage and embrace inclusivity in the home and beyond.

Description from A Place to Belong website: 

Gone are the days when socially conscious parents feel comfortable teaching their children to merely tolerate others. Instead, they are looking for a way to authentically embrace the fullness of their diverse communities. A Place to Belong offers a path forward for families to honor their cultural heritage and champion diversity in the context of daily family life by:

  • Fostering open dialogue around discrimination, race, gender, disability, and class
  • Teaching “hard history” in an age-appropriate way
  • Curating a diverse selection of books and media choices in which children see themselves and people who are different
  • Celebrating cultural heritage through art, music, and poetry
  • Modeling activism and engaging in community service projects as a family

Amber O’Neal Johnston shows parents of all backgrounds how to create a home environment where children feel secure in their own personhood and culture, enabling them to better understand and appreciate people who are racially and culturally different. A Place to Belong gives parents the tools to empower children to embrace their unique identities while feeling beautifully tethered to their global community.

At A Charlotte Mason Plenary, we support and believe in Amber’s message of diversity and inclusion. We’re excited to offer this live discussion based on her book, A Place to Belong: Celebrating Diversity and Kinship in the Home and Beyond.

We help you “Charlotte Mason Your Way” not just from an educational perspective, but from a cultural and developmental perspective as well.
