Cultural Writing. Multicultural Studies. Few places in the United States provide the goldmine of diversity found in South Florida, and what better place to look at race relations--past and present--from a variety of cultural perspectives. The Race and Change Project has produced an impressive oral history archive, housed at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale, which features over 100 interviews with Blacks, Whites, and immigrants all talking about their race relations experiences before and after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A multi-ethnic group of students at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, most not even born then, were challenged to confront these historical accounts and explore their own generational experiences aroudn race in thoughtful, mindful, candid, creative ways. The result is this collection. It features 22 writers who blend their personal stories with the voices of archival oral histories, weaving a rich tapestry of memories into a dialogue on differences that is sure to spark more discussion.

Page has been a broadcast mainstay for decades, delivering his sensible and balanced perspective on The MacLaughlin Group, NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, NPR's Weekend Edition, MSNBC's Chris Matthews Show, and many other popular shows. His column, which is featured in over 150 newspapers, provides keen and clever insight on the day's most pressing political and social issues.

The volume addresses such issues as the extent to which public schools are succeeding and the degree to which contemporary criticism is or is not warranted. By examining a range of content areas and a variety of philosophical and theoretical conerns, this work homes in on the evolution of curricula, methods and the forces and ideas that shape the debate. Chapters reflect the view that criticism of public schools and teachers is misplaced and misguided. Public schools operate under great stress from the pedagogical and political Left and Right. This often results in pressures and restrictions imposed through government mandates and corporate sponsorship that obscures the real issues and successes of America's public schools.

Geographical perspectives on the changing patterns of race and ethnicity in the United States. In an approach that differs from other publications on U.S. multiculturalism, Multicultural Geographies examines the changing patterns of race and ethnicity in the United States from geographical perspectives. It reflects the significant contributions made by geographers in recent years to our understanding of the day-to-day experiences of American minorities and the historical and current processes that account for living spaces, persistent patterns of segregation and group inequalities, and the complex geographies that continue to evolve at local and regional levels across the country. One of the book’s underlying themes is the dynamic and complex nature of U.S. multiculturalism and the academic difficulty in evaluating it from a single viewpoint or theoretical stance. As such, Multicultural Geographies is derived from the joint efforts of selected scholars to bring together diverse perspectives and approaches in documenting the experiences of American minorities and the issues that affect them.

Uses both historical and contemporary case studies to examine how race and ethnicity affect the places we live, work, and visit. This book examines major Hispanic, African, and Asian diasporas in the continental United States and Puerto Rico from the nineteenth century to the present, with particular attention on the diverse ways in which these immigrant groups have shaped and reshaped American places and landscapes. Through both historical and contemporary case studies, the contributors examine how race and ethnicity affect the places we live, work, and visit, illustrating along the way the behaviors and concepts that comprise the modern ethnic and racial geography of immigrant and minority groups. While primarily addressed to students and scholars in the fields of racial and ethnic geography, these case studies will be accessible to anyone interested in race-place connections, race-ethnicity boundaries, the development of racialization, and the complexity of human settlement patterns and landscapes that make up the United States and Puerto Rico. Taken together, they show how individuals and culture groups, through their ideologies, social organization, and social institutions, reflect both local and regional processes of place-making and place-remaking that occur within and beyond the continental United States.
