Editors dedicate the award to all who struggle to institutionalize Ethnic Studies
The INDIES recognize the best books published in 2019 from small, indie, and university presses, as well as self-published authors.
A Special Dedication from the Editors of Rethinking Ethnic Studies:
“As the editors of Rethinking Ethnic Studies, we dedicate this award to all who have been struggling to institutionalize Ethnic Studies for 50+ years — from the ancestral knowledge of our homes, to the streets, to the classrooms and academies, to the state and local boardrooms, which have the power to decide what gets taught in our curricula. It is humbling to know that this collection helps students and educators — from early childhood through university — continue this struggle for racial and educational justice.
This award is yours. We recognize that we are just beginning to scratch the surface of how to transform the educational system in the profound ways we envision — combatting centuries of anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, and racism-by-design. It is necessary, and the struggle continues. Love and knowledge centered in Ethnic Studies and Communities of Color, onward!”
– Rethinking Ethnic Studies editors, R. Tolteka Cuauhtin, Miguel Zavala, Christine Sleeter, and Wayne Au
