Born Out of Struggle: Critical Race Theory, School Creation and the Politics of Interruption

Rooted in the initial struggle of community members who staged a successful hunger strike to secure a high school in their Chicago neighborhood, David Stovall's Born Out of Struggle focuses on his first-hand participation in the process to help design the school. Offering important lessons about how to remain accountable to communities while designing a curriculum with a social justice agenda, Stovall explores the use of critical race theory to encourage its practitioners to spend less time with abstract theories and engage more concrete examples of how to navigate the constraints of working with centralized bureaucracies in education and apply them to real-world situations.
