"The first edition of What's Race Got To Do With It was critical in orienting educators and activists in the struggle against institutional racism in our schools in an era largely marked by 'colorblind' racism. Now, with a white supremacist in the White House, the editors have thoroughly updated the book to analyze the open attack on Black and Brown students and equip antiracists to fight back by joining the social movements-test resistance, Black Lives Matter at School, community schools, educator strikes, and others-that are turning our schools into sites of resistance."-Jesse Hagopian, Ethnic Studies Teacher; Editor of, Teaching for Black Lives
"The editors of What's Race Got To Do With It understood the urgent need for this second edition. They help us make sense of the perils and possibilities of this moment and lay out an essential race-class analysis so we might understand and attack the many-headed hydra of educational injustice today."-Jeanne Theoharis, Distinguished Professor, Brooklyn College of CUNY; Author, A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History
