PSC CUNY Traditional A grant. Adelaide Sanford, Educational Warrior.

Funded Project Plan

The book, with the working title, Adelaide Sanford, Educational Warrior, for which I am developing a publisher’s proposal, for Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, is an effort to unpack characteristics of Crispus Attucks School, under Adelaide Sanford’s leadership, in order to describe a model of urban success achieved during tumultuous times. The planned book, based on the findings that emerge through case study methodology, will add to the dialogue on how race in America intersects teaching and learning. The significance of the discourse is not small, particularly given that in some cities Black and Hispanic youth make up 75% of the public-school population.
