What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Sensoy and DiAngelo masterfully unpack complex concepts in a highly readable and engaging fashion for readers ranging from preservice through experienced classroom teachers. The authors treat readers as intelligent thinkers who are capable of deep reflection and ethical action. I love their comprehensive development of a critical social justice framework, and their blend of conversation, clarity, and research. I heartily recommend this book!”
—Christine Sleeter, professor emerita, California State University Monterey Bay


“The authors provide an inspired yet accessible lens into how social inequity is reproduced. This is an incredible gift for encouraging their audience to reexamine views on race, gender, and minority stereotypes. This book will change you!”
—Dr. Byron D. Joyner, vice dean for Graduate Medical Education and Designated Institutional Official, University of Washington


“Sensoy and DiAngelo bring their knowledge and insights as engaged educators and scholars to this second edition. They have thoughtfully updated their chapters, concepts, and examples for the current sociocultural and political climate of teaching and learning in contemporary schools. A wonderful, accessible text!”
