This book is for anyone who has either wondered or been asked, "How can I incorporate multicultural education into my classroom?-- David Stone in "Democracy and Education"
"Beyond Heroes" is a toolkit for unpacking years of personal, institutional, and historical baggage and raising hard issues in constructive ways. It shows how the trendy but soft and superficial multiculturalism now prevalent in schools might become more robust and powerful. It moves beyond "celebrating diversity" to understanding why some differences translate into access to privilege and power, while others are a source of discrimination and injustice. With its many practical strategies for creating dialogue and real change in school communities, "Beyond Heroes and Holidays" left me hopeful that we might yet move to a higher ground of mutual understanding and join in a common struggle for justice in schools and out. --Stan Karp
