 We Want To Do More Than Survive by Bettina Love

"Bettina Love persuasively argues that educators must teach students about racial violence, oppression, and how to make sustainable change in their communities through racial civic initiatives and movements. Love shows that to achieve educational freedom -- not merely reform-- teachers, parents, and community leaders must approach education with the imagination, determination, boldness, and urgency of an abolitionist. Following in the tradition of activists like Ella Baker, Bayard Rustin, and Fannie Lou Hamer, WE WANT TO DO MORE THAN SURVIVE introduces an alternative to traditional modes of educational reform and expands our ideas of civic engagement and intersectional justice." Bettina Love is an award-winning author and an associate professor of educational theory and practice at the University of Georgia.
