«‘Teaching Black Girls’ is told by a voice so rich in character that it challenges us to deal effectively with the intersections of race, gender, and class. Through richly intertwined personal narratives we are reminded or introduced to what it is like growing up as an African American female. The voices of these resilient students stand out among the common discourse in which educational policies are too often based. This book should be a vital resource for teachers, educational administrators, university faculty, and policy makers who are change agents within urban schools.» (Dawn G. Williams, Professor of Educational Administration, Howard University)
«‘Teaching Black Girls’ is a beautifully written ethnography that performs what it promises. Namely, Evans-Winters challenges the reader to redefine resiliency for African American girls as hybrid and participatory. Utilizing ‘Black Womanist’ thinking, Evans-Winters develops critiques that are as complex as the lives of the girls she portrays, and compellingly argues we are all responsible for and to the resiliency of youth.» (Wanda Pillow, Professor of Educational Policy Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
