The National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) has recently announced that We Can’t Lead Where We Won’t Go: An Educator’s Guide to Equity by Gary R. Howard (published this September) is the 2014 recipient of the Philip C. Chinn Book Award. The award is given annually based on a book’s ability to foster awareness, acceptance, and affirmation of diversity in society and to contribute to the development of multicultural education.
Gary Howard has secured his reputation as a powerful and effective voice in systemic equity reform. His writings and seminars confronting the most difficult issues of race and privilege in modern education have transformed teacher mindsets and improved outcomes for diverse students in America and abroad. More than a book but a complete professional development program, We Can’t Lead Where We Won’t Go includes over 9 hours of video and practical, step-by-step materials developed by Gary to help facilitators guide staff in addressing educational inequities. Congratulations to Gary and the Corwin team for this award. Special recognition goes to the editorial team of Dan Alpert, Kim Greenberg, and Cesar Reyes; the production and design team of Amy Schroller, Rose Storey and Amanda Simpson; and especially Barbara DeHart, for her work on the video production.
