If you are planning on putting together workshops or becoming an educator, this is a must have. All the "isms" are included, as well as interactive exercises which you can use with groups including younger people as well as seasoned community organizers.

This book is a must-have for everyone who is or is becoming an educator. I find myself returning to this text with regularity to think about ways to approach teaching the interconnectedness of all isms and issues of diversity.
A must-have resource for social justice educators or anyone wishing to further their own understanding of how to facilitate meaningful conversations about diversity and social justice.
