«With complexity and caution, this collection of essays illustrates a range of personal, pedagogical, and political changes made possible when critically addressing White privilege in the classroom. Virginia Lea, Judy Helfand, and the contributors to this volume have produced a helpful and long overdue insightful resource, for teaching against racial injustice.» (Kevin K. Kumashiro, Center for Anti-Oppressive Education, Author of 'Against Common Sense: Teaching and Learning Toward Social Justice')
«'Identifying Race and Transforming Whiteness in the Classroom' is a stimulating and thought provoking set of essays by a diverse group of educators. The book focuses on how we can actively transform perspectives on whiteness that result in inequities and injustices in ourselves, in our curriculum, in our pedagogy, and, ultimately, in U. S. society and across the globe.» (Ann Berlak and Sekani Moyenda, Co-authors of 'Taking it personally: Racism in classrooms from Kindergarten to College')
