Since the publication of the first edition of this book, the nation has moved from silence about the reality of racism to the denial of its existence.

Included are: (1) "Wounding the Spirit: Discrimination and Traditional American Indian Belief Systems" (Carol Locust); (2) "Navajo Youth and Anglo Racism: Cultural Integrity and Resistance" (Donna Deyhle); (3) "Reflections of a Black Social Scientist: Some Struggles, Some Doubts, Some Hopes" (Jacquelyn Mitchell); (4) "Racism in Academia: The Old Wolf Revisited" (Maria de la Luz Reyes and John J.

Siddle Walker); (11) "Cultivating a Morality of Care in African American Adolescents: A Culture-Based Model of Violence Prevention" (Janie V. Ward); (12) "Reading the World of School Literacy: Contextualizing the Experience of a Young African American Male" (Arlette Ingram Willis); (13) "Because You Like Us: The Language of Control" (Cynthia Ballenger); (14) "Talking about Race, Learning about Racism: The Application of Racial Identity Development Theory in the Classroom" (Beverly Daniel Tatum); (15) "Empowering Minority Students: A Framework for Intervention" (Jim Cummins); and (16) "Uncertain Allies: Understanding the Boundaries of Race and Teaching" (Marilyn Cochran-Smith).
