Chapter 6 of April Baker-Bell’s breakthrough book, Linguistic Justice: Black Language, Literacy, Identity, and Pedagogy, functions as a bonus, standalone chapter. It vividly depicts how African American literature can provide a rich foundation for students to explore the ways identity is conceived through language expression and how African American literature is an important vehicle work toward dismantling Anti-Black Linguistic Racism. It is an accessible and inviting entry point to Baker-Bell’s breakthrough book, which offers as a much-needed framework for understanding how Anti-Black Linguistic Racism and white linguistic supremacy interact in the classroom.
