Staff Book Recommendations: Carol Gant

Carol Gant

I’ve been thinking a lot about intersectionality in literature, especially regarding Black women and gender. Two books come to mind for me on these topics. One is Intersectional Identity and Education Leadership of Black Women in the U.S.A. by Sonia Douglass Horsford, a collection of essays and studies on the experiences and barriers of Black women in leadership, as well as their strategies for overcoming such barriers. The second book is Speaking Truth to Power by Anita Hill. It deals with race, gender, and class, and describes a historical experience for Black people and their journey to the present (or 1996, when the book was published).

The MAEC blog is designed to engage hearts and minds of school and district leaders across the country to engage in issues that you have identified as being essential in education. Opinions do not necessarily reflect the views of the organization.
