The overarching purpose of the Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies Series (CSP Series) is to offer preparing and practicing educators, graduate students, and scholars with a comprehensive series of books dedicated to educational settings engaged in sustaining Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander young people, families, and communities as these memberships necessarily intersect with gender and sexuality, with dis/ability, with migration, with language, with land, with class and more. The CSP Series will be defined by its coherent focus on the strengths and wisdom of young people, families, elders, communities and educators who use education—in Pre-K through college classrooms, across content areas, in community organizations, and in peer and family settings—as a tool of positive social transformation and revitalization.
