Series: Language and Literacy Series
Featuring contributions from a stellar group of teachers and researchers, this volume opens new territory on a critical but rarely addressed topic—the intersection of race with literacy research and practice. Grounded in classroom experiences, this insightful volume:
Stuart Greene is associate professor and Frank O’Malley Chair of the University Writing Program at the University of Notre Dame. Dawn Abt-Perkins is associate professor and chair of the Education Department at Lake Forest College.
“Stuart Greene and Dawn Abt-Perkins have assembled a group of first-rate literacy and language scholars to take on the challenge of race and racism.”
—From the Foreword by Gloria Ladson-Billings
“Racism and privilege are not going to disappear overnight. But the people whose voices are reflected in this volume have taken a bold step in pointing out how to use literacy as a tool for social justice.”
—From the Afterword by Sonia Nieto
