Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Demonstrates how critical race theory can be useful in real-world situations.

Rooted in the initial struggle of community members who staged a successful hunger strike to secure a high school in their Chicago neighborhood, David Omotoso Stovall’s Born Out of Struggle focuses on his first-hand participation in the process to help design the school. Offering important lessons about how to remain accountable to communities while designing a curriculum with a social justice agenda, Stovall explores the use of critical race theory to encourage its practitioners to spend less time with abstract theories and engage more with communities that make a concerted effort to change their conditions. Stovall provides concrete examples of how to navigate the constraints of working with centralized bureaucracies in education and apply them to real-world situations.

David Omotoso Stovall is Professor of Educational Policy Studies and African American Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is coeditor (with William Ayers and Therese Quinn) of Handbook of Social Justice in Education.
