If you read this book looking for action steps or a list of “how to’s”- you won’t find it. Instead, this piece focuses on practical application. Dr. Lyiscott provides the reader with ways in which to (1) begin the work of self awareness in order to effectively support and engage with social justice work and (2) a framework to use when getting started.

    Some interesting ideas, but very choppy writing. The chapters feel as if they were essays she had previously published in academic periodicals. And I'm not a fan of spoken word poetry, so those passages didn't do anything for me. However, I am taking away two solid ideas to use in the classroom, so I'm pleased!

    As I was reading this morning I was thinking to myself: This resonates with me and I am glad I read it. Considering my natural bent, it affirmed most of my nonconformist "other than the grid" viewpoints right down to being a genuine individual instead of any stereotype unconscious or conscious. Realistically, this short read opened wider already opened eyes and gave a deeper perspective of many why's and how's of it all. Very informative book.

    I enjoyed her candidness on this issue. There were some really useful/practical practices or strategies Lyiscott put forth that schools, teachers, districts could use in anti-racist work. However, I felt many of the chapters didn't fully address the teaching component of this work and veered away from what teachers could be doing specifically to address/tackle the insidious ways white privilege/racism worm their way into education and how/what teachers teach.

    If you are a person of color I do not think you NEED. this book. This was suppose to be a book about learning for me. I think its more suited for someone who knows little about social Justice in America and is white and an educator. The book was to anecdotal for my taste, and a bit scattered. It felt like she was just saying things and not many real actionable items.

    Some parts of this book made me re-read, share, and sit with uncomfortableness for a bit. It was good for me, and I know I’d learn a ton more should I follow the author’s instructions as to how to facilitate discussions and look inside ourselves.

    A great resource for white and black educators, perfect for a book study or tool to use to change systematic methods of racism in your school. Such important work to be done.

    I read most of this right after a workshop with Lyiscott. I finished it up today. It's useful as a reminder of the workshop activities and content.
