Opening minds

Mills-open windowBoston College graduate and education consultant Afrika Afeni Mills explores why racial identity work is crucial, especially for white educators and students, in order to achieve a learning environment that is bias-free and truly advances diversity, equity, and inclusion, in her new book Open Windows, Open Minds: Developing Antiracist, Pro-Human Students (Corwin, 2022). Mills offers a road map for educators to create and sustain learning environments that recognize and value the histories, perspectives, experiences, interests, identities, and contributions of traditionally marginalized people. In Open Windows, Open Minds, Mills shows educators how to use literacy instruction to provide more windows to racial awareness, antiracist thinking, and pro-human action in the classroom. Mills earned a M.Ed. from the BC Lynch School of Education and Human Development.
