Co-edited by LaGarrett King, associate professor of learning and instruction and director of the Center for K-12 Black History and Racial Literacy Education,  “We Be Lovin’ Black Children: Learning to Be Literate About the African Diaspora” was published by Myers Education Press in 2021. The book discusses what we must do to ensure that Black children across the world are loved, safe and that their souls and spirits are healed from the ongoing damage of living in a world where white supremacy flourishes. It offers strategies and activities that families, communities, social organizations and others can use to unapologetically love Black children.

Stephen Santa-Ramirez, assistant professor of educational leadership and policy, co-wrote chapter seven, “Reimagining Institutionalized Support for Undocumented and DACA College Students: A Critical Approach,” in the book “Racial Equity on College Campuses Connecting Research and Practice” published by SUNY Press in 2022. The book aims to allow expert scholars and practitioners to translate research-based findings into actionable recommendations related to racial inequities in higher education in three key areas: university leadership, teaching and learning, and student and campus life.

GSE doctoral student Danielle Lewis was one of 50 student writers who contributed to the book “Keeping Us Engaged,” which offers faculty practical strategies to engage students that are research-grounded and endorsed by students themselves. Her contribution was part of chapter two, “Power of Relationships,” and focused on creating a professional network among advisees.

Sarah A. Robert, associate professor of learning and instruction, co-wrote chapter twelve, “Invoking Abuelita Epistemologies for Academic Transformation in the Coronavirus Age: Autoethnographic Reflections from a Motherscholar Collective,” in the book “Global Feminist Autoethnographies During COVID-19 ” published by Routledge in 2022. The book bears witness to displacements, disruptions and distress of tenured faculty, faculty on temporary contracts, graduate students and people connected to academia during COVID-19.

GSE alumna Brittany Patterson, PhD ’15, wrote and self-published “The FIGHT,” a new book to help young people resolve and defuse conflict, in 2021. The book aims to create discussions about the challenging situations everyone encounters and provide clear lessons in thoughtful decision-making that can easily apply to people from all backgrounds.
