Vaccaro and Camba-Kelsay highlight the often-silenced voices of women of color on predominantly white campuses through the exploration of their Sister Stories course, a unique class that provides a safe and inviting space for women of color. This work is a wonderful example of professor-led, university classroom-based research that provides tangible solutions to help empower women of color on university campuses. -- Jessica DeCuir-Gunby, North Carolina State University
This engaging, well-researched book analyzes the creation of classrooms and curricula that place women of color at the center of teaching and learning, where students at the intersection of marginalized identities can expose and explore the micro-aggressions they navigate in race-neutral/gender-neutral environments. This book illustrates the power of such spaces to support self-awareness, critical consciousness, and enhanced learning not only for women students of color but also for their peers whose experience of being decentered is equally transformative. This book is a timely and welcome contribution. -- Lee Anne Bell, Barnard College
