Recommended Reading

"This book provides insight into the thinking of one of the foremost advocates for addressing the achievement gap in authentic ways that result in the underlying assumptions of racism being uncovered and addressed. Singleton's delineation of the concept 'racial equity work' is a major contribution."

Randall B. Lindsey, Author of Cultural Proficiency

"Readers who embrace the courageous conversations that Glenn Singleton has written about in these pages will find themselves analyzing their own thoughts and conversations about race in school settings. This text is a deeper analysis of previous conversations and the protocol introduced in Courageous Conversations About Race. The vignettes and cases are a strength."

Ignacio Lopez, Director of Outreach and Professor of Education
National College of Education, National Louis University

"In this book, Glenn Singleton takes the courageous steps to model what he teaches as he gives us the pathways for our own journeys to confront racism in our lives. Glenn proves the necessity of holding courageous conversations about race if we want to eliminate the opportunity gap for ALL students."
