"Approximately eight of ten teachers in the United States are white - they all should read this important book. Additionally, any white woman who aspires to responsibly and effectively demonstrate educational care for black boys will find much that is useful in this text. It should be required reading in teacher education programs and professional development experiences for all educators in P-12 schools and districts."--Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D., Clifford and Betty Allen Professor
"This Guide for White Women who Teach Black Boys will change you. Once you start reading it, you won't be able to put it down. Weaving together voices of multiple authors, both Black and White, chapters offer poignant personal stories, current research, and well-chosen activities. Every chapter invites White women to do the needed work that will enable us to support healthy development of our Black male students. Few books take on such urgent work with so much care and proactive optimism."-- (08/31/2017)
"There is no other instructional guide quite like The Guide for White Women who Teach Black Boys. While this book offers practical information and advice directly to the largest demographic of educators teaching one of the most marginalized populations of students, it transcends strategy and becomes a book of Black Critical Cultural Studies. The research, essays, vignettes and activities written by a stellar group of scholars and educators, such as Dr. Howard Stephenson, Glen Singleton and Stephanie Rome represent thousands of hours working with Black students and White educators. The Guide describes patterns, context, nuance and complexity in White racial identity development as it interacts in the past and present with a full range of black boys and adolescents: cis, heterosexual, trans, gay, non-athletic, celebrated and incarcerated. Above all is a direct exploration into the 'dos, ' 'don'ts, ' 'why's' and 'how's' of culturally responsive teaching from expert teachers."-- (08/02/2017)
"This book raises crucial questions about teaching and learning across race lines, in a racially unequal and segregated society. With a lens focused equally (and with critical compassion) on white women and black boys, dozens of authors offer thoughtful, urgent, personal, and concrete suggestions for moving beyond "the stereotypes, the misinformation, and the lies we have been taught about Black boys" to new habits of understanding, respecting, and connecting that instead help unleash young people's full human contributions. Read and digest this book to embrace the deep realities and thrilling potential of this crucial American task."-- (08/31/2017)
