Use courageous conversations to build racial equity in your schools and districts!

In this companion to his best-selling book, Glenn Singleton presents specific examples in which racism impedes student success and illustrates how to usher in courageous conversations to ignite systemic transformation. Through first-person vignettes and an actual school district case study, this breakthrough handbook focuses on the powerful possibilities that are unleashed when you:

  • Learn how other education leaders have addressed and improved race relations
  • Explore urgent challenges in racial equity and courageous approaches to solving them
  • Reflect on your personal role in the struggle to achieve racial equity
  • Introduce culturally relevant curriculum, instruction, and assessment in your school or district

Industry Reviews

"This book provides insight into the thinking of one of the foremost advocates for addressing the achievement gap in authentic ways that result in the underlying assumptions of racism being uncovered and addressed. Singleton's delineation of the concept 'racial equity work' is a major contribution." -- Randall B. Lindsey, Author of Cultural Proficiency
"Readers who embrace the courageous conversations that Glenn Singleton has written about in these pages will find themselves analyzing their own thoughts and conversations about race in school settings. This text is a deeper analysis of previous conversations and the protocol introduced in Courageous Conversations About Race. The vignettes and cases are a strength." -- Ignacio Lopez, Director of Outreach and Professor of Education
"In this book, Glenn Singleton takes the courageous steps to model what he teaches as he gives us the pathways for our own journeys to confront racism in our lives. Glenn proves the necessity of holding courageous conversations about race if we want to eliminate the opportunity gap for ALL students." -- Bonnie M. Davis, Author of How to Teach Students Who Don't Look Like You
