Review Quote*

Sherry Paris has done it again! Her ability to break down difficult but critical constructs and to propose simple, practical, engaging, caring, respectful, and affirming ways forward for youth to become social justice activists is exceptional. Cannot wait to use this book in my teacher education courses!
