African American Females' Voices in the Classroom: Young Sisters Making Connections through Literature.
Davis, Rachel T.
New Advocate, v13 n3 p259-71 Sum 2000
Examines the reading experiences of six African-American middle school girls. Finds that their book selection processes were different than those proposed by the professional multicultural education literature; they found affirmations, support, solutions, and decision-making skills in their reading; and that what mattered were the connections the girls were making to those characters.
