Boucher engages race in a scholarly framework designed to guide educators through meaningful conversations with students across academic settings. Based on established theories such as critical race, critical whiteness, and multicultural understandings, this volume ushers educators through historical experiences of racial/ethnic minorities with emphasis on African Americans. In tandem with historical phenomena (e.g., slavery, disenfranchisement, discrimination), the author additionally offers insight into factors contributing to detrimental outcomes in the educational system as a result of unprepared educators (e.g., opportunity gap, educational debt, school-to-prison pipeline). Such points are addressed throughout the text. The book is well organized and supported by scholarly sources, and the epilogue successfully connects the significance of the discussion to the events of 2020. This study is notable for the author's perspective as a white, male educator. He emphasizes that the book is not intended to offer outsider commentary but rather to help white educators become meaningful, genuine allies of African American students. Considering the emergence of scholarly research and sources on the development of professional cultural competency, this text is a valuable contribution to the literature on educator preparation. Recommended.
