"While many books decry the crisis in the schooling of African American children, they are often disconnected from the living experiences and work of classroom teachers and principals. In Change is Gonna Come, the authors look back to go forward, providing specific practices that K-12 literacy educations can use to transform their schools. The text addresses four major debates: the fight for access to literacy; supports and roadblocks to success; best practices, theories, and perspectives on teaching African American students; and the role of African American families in the literacy lives of their children."
