Jael Ealey Richardson

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Jael Ealey Richardson is an author, a broadcaster and the Artistic Director/Founder of the Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD), held each year in Brampton, Ontario. In this conversation, we talk about Jael’s book, The Stone Thrower, her own identity journey and the importance of diversity in the stories we tell, and the books that we read, as young people and as adults.
