Review quote

"This groundbreaking book gathers the stories of the struggle for social justice through the voices of Latina/o leaders in education. Offering poignant, moving testimonios and well-researched scholarly essays, this collection covers the significant court cases that ultimately ended the racist educational policies under Jim Crow." -Norma E. Cantu, Professor of Latina/Latino Studies and English at the University of Missouri-Kansas City "Latino Civil Rights in Education is a unique and rich compendium of compelling, wonderfully told reflections on activism, agency, and transformative resistance around improving schooling in the US for Chicanos/Mexicanos, Boricuas, and other Latinos. This book is a must-read for educators and scholars in Chicano or Boricua studies and anyone interested in social activism and organizing, qualitative inquiry, and/or indigenous methodologies." -Reynaldo F. Macias, Professor of Chicana/o Studies, Education and Applied Linguistics at the University of California, Los Angeles
