Publisher's Summary

For many years to come, race will continue to be a source of controversy and conflict in American society. For many of us it will continue to shape where we live, pray, go to school, and socialize. We cannot simply wish away the existence of race or racism, but we can take steps to lessen the ways in which the categories trap and confine us. Educators, who should be committed to helping young people realize their intellectual potential as they make their way toward adulthood, have a responsibility to help them find ways to expand identities related to race, so that they can experience the fullest possibility of all that they may become.

In this brutally honest - yet ultimately hopeful - book, Pedro Noguera examines the many facets of race in schools and society, and reveals what it will take to improve outcomes for all students. From achievement gaps to immigration, Noguera offers a rich and compelling picture of a complex issue that affects all of us.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Excellent book"

    I loved listening to the theories, arguments and stories included in this composition. Noguera's ideas are clear, well explained and backed up with evidence and experience.

    I feel so empowered to go and make change, now, having read the book.

    Thank you.

    "Audio Feedback"
    Where does The Trouble with Black Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found the audio to be helpful in understanding the material. It was convenient to drive or exercise while listening to the material. One thing that really needs attention is the fact that chapters programed in the audio file did not match the book's sequence of chapters. So match the content by title headings instead of chapters so if you are assigned to read such chapters, you will not make the mistake to listen to the wrong chapters (I did that). Other than that, I found it useful. Great
