Lawrence Blum is the Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education and a professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
"Blum is to be commended for the manner in which his book and
course move across and between many 'borders' that academics rarely
cross... The book is an accessible one I strongly recommend for
academics across the related fields and high school teachers, and I
dare say high school students themselves--if they are looking for a
challenging but relevant book. Taking his own advice, Blum leaves
his comfort zone to reach new audiences, and to work across fields
and sites to make an exemplary contribution." -- Tatyana
Kleyn, Teachers College Record
"Blum's good ideas should get in the hands of many teachers, administrators, and parents who want to try such things in schools, or to evaluate or rethink their current practices...This class is a powerful metaphor for a racially literate society, as well as a thoughtful narrative of a valuable educational experiment." -- Sophie Bell, Radical Teacher
"The personal nature of racial identity for the students and their candid and poignant reflections on race are among the many strengths of this engaging book. Although of special interest to teachers involved in inner-city education, the book has much to offer general readers."-- K. Ryan, CHOICE
