  • Kristin HaltinnerEmail author


Two challenges facing instructors in the twenty-first century are the social discourse of colorblindness and the fact that many teachers do not have adequate tools with which to educate students on this issue.

To that end, the scholars included this book highlight and present solutions for some of the major challenges facing instructors of race and inequality.
