The new book Revolutionary Love: Creating Culturally Inclusive Literacy Classroom by Professors Kamania Wynter-Hoyte and Eliza G. Braden tells us the answer is A LOT!
Including influences from bell hooks, Maya Angelou, Paulo Freire, Ibram X. Kendi, and many more, this title provides practice to incorporate teaching strategies to reach Black and Latine students.
The book details the idea of educators centering love and culturally responsive teaching, providing more profound, inclusive literacy experiences.
Wynter-Hoyte and Braden also provide diverse children's literature to pair with lessons.
We also wanted to include a few scholarly articles for discussion to give context to the theoretical frameworks and research of love and social justice in education.
WE ARE HERE will provide you book reviews, discussions, news, and programming about literature and literacy by and about Black males. This site will also feature vlog conversations on topics related to the promoting literacy and voice for Black boys and young men.
