Researchers and theorists are calling for more research that considers the interaction of race, class, and gender in urban education research and practice. Teaching Black Girls: Resiliency in Urban Classrooms is the first book to directly focus on the pedagogical and educational needs of poor and working-class African American female students. Blurring the boundaries between research, theory, and practice, Teaching Black Girls offers teachers and educational advocates an alternative lens to approach positive educational development in urban schools. Using data from a three-year ethnography, this book explores ways in which teachers and educational institutions can foster resilience in students who acquire many risks and vulnerabilities in a society that privileges whiteness, wealth, and men. The author merges the tenets of postmodernism, Black feminism, and critical pedagogy to offer insight into the learning dynamics of students who may encounter multiple adversities in the home, community, and school.
