Af-Am Lit Classroom Library

My name is Nathan Fulcher and I am English teacher at Santa Monica High School.  I am fortunate to teach an amazing senior elective class on African American Literature.  This class continues to inspire me on a daily basis.

In the last few years, some amazing new titles have emerged that I would love to add to my class curriculum.  Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, March by John Lewis, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates are a few of the books that I would love to be able to buy full class sets of and teach to my classes.  

I find my passion everyday in seeing my students discover new ideas and to find themselves in the literature we read.  They deserve to read the best and donating to this campaign will allow me to offer that to my students.  Thank you for thinking about my students! They will be eternally grateful.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share a quick update after so many of you generously donated to our fundraiser. Here's a picture of me picking up a shipment of Homegoing at Eso Won Books, who was kind enough to offer us an "educator discount" on the title. If you live in the LA area and get the opportunity, check out their amazing, independently owned book store that focuses on books by and about African Americans. But be sure to allot enough time because if you're like me, you could spend hours here!

I'm floored by the generosity of friends and strangers alike that have donated to our cause. I shared this news with my students today and they were so excited to hear that so many of you care about their education.

My original goal (which we are SO close to meeting) was set so that I could order the bare minimum number of copies for two full class sets of the three titles I listed. While I'm hopefully optimistic we will now reach that original goal, I've raised it slightly in the hopes of ordering as many copies of the books as possible so that they can continue to be used year after year.

Again, thank you all for opening up your hearts and wallets so my students can broaden their horizons!

Mr. Fulcher
