Showing my color : impolite essays on race and identity by Clarence Page ( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Pulitzer-Prize winning columnist for the Chicago Tribune presents a series of essays examining the central questions of race, gender, and ethnic identity that have emerged since the civil rights reforms of the mid-1960s. The essays address such topics as how racism still acts to keep nonwhites in subordinate political, economic, and social status; how the hip-hop generation has turned - black is beautiful on its head; and the volatile relationship between blacks and Jews. Page reflects on changes in the racial landscape since the 1960s and reconnects the increasingly abstract political debates about black conservatives, affirmative action, and the race card to the people for whom these words mean something more than just votes

"This is the story of Amistad Academy, a charter school founded in 1999 by a group of Yale Law School students who enlisted the help of local business and community leaders. Amistad serves about 250 students, 97% of whom are black and Latino kids in grades five through eight. 84% of the children qualify for the federal free lunch program. These students represent a population that is traditionally underserved by the district public school system; they enter Amistad in the fifth grade, on average, more than two years below grade level. But by the time they leave Amistad in the eighth grade, most of these urban kids are doing as well or better than their white suburban counterpart."--Container
