Can White teachers teach Black Students? This is the provocative and pointed inquiry that drives the creation of White Teachers, Black Students. The twin purpose of this book is how can White teachers consistently teach and reach Black students? Hines starts the book by framing these inquiries within the historical context of race, whiteness, and white people. He then carefully draws a line from this context to the modern day white framing of White teachers' actions towards African American students. White teachers are challenged to disrupt this teaching identity for a more developed and diverse worldview regarding race. From there, Hines presents a framework for translating White racial awareness into the ultimate White racial actualization-an affirmation of the ability to facilitate Black student achievement.

White Teachers, Black Students is a wonderfully clear and engaging must-read for teachers. Mack T. Hines marshals vivid examples from his extensive experience working with White teachers to show how deficit thinking about Black students is rooted in whiteness, but also how White teachers can learn to see and reach their students. This book is smart, highly useful, needed, and absolutely on-target. -- Christine Sleeter, author, White Bread: Weaving Cultural Past into the Present; president emerita, National Association of Multicultural Education
Dr. Mack Hines is an important voice in the struggle to achieve equal educational outcomes for children of color. His passionate commitment to our children and families springs forth from these pages. This book is filled with 'cutting edge' information and solutions. It is 'must reading' for all educators. -- Janice E. Hale, author, "Learning While Black: Creating Educational Excellence for African American Children"; professor of Early Childhood Education, Wayne State; Founding Director of the Institute for the Study of the African Child (ISAAC)
Passionately written. Provocatively argued. White Teachers, Black Students forces you to think about what is happening in classrooms all throughout the country. Whether you agree entirely with Hines or not, it doesn't matter. The read is worthwhile. -- Eddie Glaude Jr., William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African American Studies, Princeton University
