"Grounded in research, case studies, and personal narratives, this remarkable book informs us how African American teachers’ cultural experiences and ethnic identity influence their classroom practices. This book is essential reading for all educators interested in the recruitment, retention, and professional development of teachers of color." --Lisa D. Delpit, Benjamin E. Mays Professor of Educational Leadership, Georgia State University
