MEDIA REVIEWS

"A sophisticated and timely collection . Essential reading for anyone teaching and thinking critically about race issues." - Carl Gutierrez-Jones, Professor of English, University of California, Santa Barbara; Director, Chicano Studies Institute

"This is an exciting, timely volume that will make a significant contribution to knowledge about the experience of teaching race, as well as to the literature on colorblindness and contemporary racial politics. A wonderful tool for those of us dealing with these issues in our own classrooms." - Abby L. Ferber, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs; Director, The Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion

"Contemporary debates concerning race are rife with cliches, myths, accusations about playing the race card, and efforts to silence voices of dissent and opposition. Teaching Race in the 21st Century exposes these failed conversations, demonstrating the ways in which dominant racial discourses infect and affect conversations within today s classrooms. This collection doesn t simply bring into focus the challenges of teaching about race and racism at this historic moment, but provides practical advice and strategic guidance as to how to intervene and transform the classroom. For any teacher and student who have struggled to push conversations of race in new ways, Guerrero s collection provides the perfect tools and insights." - David Leonard, Associate Professor, Department of Comparative Ethnic Studies, Washington State University
