Other Books in Series

This is book number 454 in the Counterpoints series.


In ways explicit and embodied, this book focuses on how engaging spirituality and the inner life can serve as radical intervention in our dialogues about race and culture in education. The collective visions of the scholars included call us to a new way of thinking about the evidence of things unseen, about spirituality in education as a site of profound possibilities for change, equity, and social justice.
