Required Reading

The Chronicle of Higher Education published an editorial by Mariko Silver in which she recommends Jeff Chang's We Gon' Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation as "required reading for all higher-education professionals." 

This slim volume of essays deepened my understanding of the multilayered work before us all...If you are struggling to understand the perspective of young people of color on your campus who are demanding change, if you want to ground your understanding of this cultural and political moment in a longer view of "diversity" in America, if you wonder (secretly or out loud) why diversity matters, if you want to understand why diversity is not enough without inclusion and equity, if you want to engage your colleagues and students in nuanced conversations about race in America, you should consider reading and assigning this book.
