Engage your students in participatory action research! Whether youÂ’re studying the history of Brown or discussing issues of diversity and racial equality, this multi-media resource is an invaluable teaching tool. The full-color book features selected excerpts from Echoes, a spoken word and dance performance by a diverse ensemble of youth from suburban and urban schools, as well as highlights and startling statistics from Documenting the History of Brown, a youth research project about racial and class (in)justice in U.S. schools. Along with the accompanying DVD, Echoes of Brown creates a series of unforgettable echoes on AmericaÂ’s long history of yearning, betrayal, victory, and relentless desire among young and old for educational justice.

• Rich video interviews with “elders” who lived through the Brown decision, including Arthur Kinoy (1921–2003,) Sonia Sanchez, Judge Jack Weinstein, Roscoe Brown, Esther Lee, Thea and Bailey Jackson, and Adam Green.

• Documenting the History of Brown which is a detailed presentation of the results of over 9,000 surveys with youth about racial and class (in)justice in U.S. schools.

• Participatory Action Research with Youth with commentary and guidance by researchers and educators.

• And much more!

    This review is from: Echoes of Brown: Youth Documenting and Performing the Legacy of Brown V. Board of Education with DVD (Teaching for Social Justice Series) (Hardcover)

    I use this DVD and book each semester in my BEF 362(foundations of education) course at The University of AL, and I love it. My favorite part, in particular, is Bailey Jackson’s image of oppression with feet and with a dance; “You can’t dance when you have your foot on somebody else’s throat.” That’s vivid as well as the segments with dance, poetry, and interviews in the rest of the DVD. I use the video to discuss Brown versus Board, and I connect the DVD to injustice at the super-structural level through laws and policies that perpetuate injustice from generation-to-generation. In addition, I have my pre-service students reflect on the students’ experiences in school and discuss the “isms” students face on a daily basis–especially racism and socio-economic classism. I would recommend this DVD and book for teachers, policy makers, professors, the average citizen, parents, and students. Also, I think anyone who wants a better world and anyone who wants to improve our schools should see the DVD at the bare minimum. Echoes of Brown is wonderful!!!!!
