Let Freedom Ring For Everyone: The Diversity of Our Nation provides students with selected readings that encourage a more fruitful, informative, and open dialogue about race, ethnicity, and immigration in the United States. The text explores the vast impact of immigrants to the economic, political, and social systems of the nation, as well as modern attitudes and perceptions toward ethnic and immigrant populations. The book features four distinct parts. Part I introduces the concepts of race, institutional racism, whiteness, and race and ethnic equality, then presents articles that examine these concepts from various perspectives. In Part II, students learn about tools of dominance and division, including stereotypes, the criminal justice system, the health care system, the political system, and educational structures. Parts III and IV contain readings regarding various minority groups that have immigrated to the United States. Students learn and read about Arab Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, Brazilian Americans, Haitian Americans, Jewish Americans, Native Americans, and Nigerian Americans. Let Freedom Ring For Everyone is an enlightening and illuminating text that is well suited for courses in American history, American culture, black studies, and ethnic studies.

Along the picturesque southern banks of the Ohio River, the African-American communities of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties have provided laborers and entrepreneurs to aid in the economic growth of the region from the earliest settlements to today. Despite numerous obstacles and against seemingly insurmountable odds, African Americans in Northern Kentucky made significant contributions in many fields, ranging from music, medicine, and literature to performing arts, poetry, education, and athletics.

Unique Challenges in Urban Schools - The Involvement of African American Parents (Hardcover): Eric R. Jackson, Carolyn Turner,... Unique Challenges in Urban Schools - The Involvement of African American Parents (Hardcover)

This study explores the various ways in which parental involvement can help to increase student academic success. More specifically, this analysis is based on the notions that: 1) parent involvement in inner city schools present unique challenges that are different from the traditional middle class perspective; 2) there is value in a cooperative approach between parents, teachers, and administrators that places the student at the center of each major discussion and decision; and 3) illustrates that parental involvement is a real perspective and not just rhetorical jargon. Although the focus of this book is in increasing parent involvement in inner city schools, readers must be mindful that the ultimate objective for this work and others like it is the successful educating of all children, so that they graduate from high school, and move into higher education, or into the workforce. Parent involvement by itself will not ensure academic success of children, but, combined with many strategies, including a clear understanding of the differences between an inner city school environment and a middle class school setting, effective teaching, sound and relevant curricula, safe and secure learning environment, and visionary leadership, children attending inner city schools can be just as effective as those in middle class school settings.
