David Stovall, "Born Out of Struggle: Critical Race Theory, School Creation, and the Politics of Interruption"
English | 2016 | ISBN-10: 1438459130 | 208 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Rooted in the initial struggle of community members who staged a successful hunger strike to secure a high school in their Chicago neighborhood, David Omotoso Stovall s "Born Out of Struggle" focuses on his first-hand participation in the process to help design the school. Offering important lessons about how to remain accountable to communities while designing a curriculum with a social justice agenda, Stovall explores the use of critical race theory to encourage its practitioners to spend less time with abstract theories and engage more with communities that make a concerted effort to change their conditions. Stovall provides concrete examples of how to navigate the constraints of working with centralized bureaucracies in education and apply them to real-world situations."
