Description

Understand the meanings and manifestations of white privilege, especially as it appears in your school, community—and yourself. Renowned speaker and author Jamila Lyiscott provides ideas and tools that teachers, school leaders, and professors can use to have productive dialogues about racial injustice and inequality.

Part I of the book helps you ask the hard questions, such as whether your pedagogy is more aligned with colonialism than you realize, and whether you are really giving students of color of voice. Part II offers a variety of helpful strategies for analysis and reflection. Each chapter includes personal stories, frank discussions of the barriers you may face, and practical ideas that will guide you as you work to confront privilege in your classroom, campus, and beyond.
