Shattering the Denial: Protocols for the Classroom and Beyond.
Donaldson, Karen B. McLean
This book examines how to address and reduce racist practices in the schools, featuring an antiracist education teacher study that provided baseline figures on teacher perceptions of racism and demonstrated how teachers can successfully implement antiracist concepts in their classrooms.
