February 22, Sunday afternoon -- Reading Gilberto Q. Conchas

Reading The Color of Success: Race and High-Achieving Youth, by Gilberto Q. Conchas, for her Thesis.

Favorite book, which she read the book for the first time about two years ago and, since, has reread and gifted it to about seven people -- Assata: An Autobiography, by Assata Shakur, activist and member of the Black Panthers, who is now living in Cuba with political asylum.

Other books she recommends: Pedagogy of the Oppressed, by Paulo Freire and Myra Bergman Ramos; The Art of Critical Pedagogy: Possibilities for Moving from Theory to Practice in Urban Schools, by Jeffrey M. Duncan-Andrade and Ernest Morrell; The Trouble with Black Boys ...And Other Reflections on Race, Equity and the Future of Public Education, by Pedro Noguera; Native Son and Black Boy, by Richard Wright; I Write What I Like, by Steve Biko; The Wretched of the Earth and Black Skin, White Masks, by Frantz Fanon; The Souls of Black Folk, by W.E.B. Du Bois; and the stageplay, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, by Ntozake Shange.
