Abstract

According to the 2010 Census, it is reported that White individuals made up 60.1% of the United States’ population, yielding a population of nearly 40% of individuals from various other races. Given the diverse nature of the U.S., culturally responsive practices and learning modules are imperative to the health and growth of our nation. Joseph R. Jones’ metaphorically titled book Feather Boas, Black Hoodies, and John Deere Hats: Discussions of Diversity in K- 12 and Higher Education speaks to inequities experienced by those entrenched in the fate of “other-ism” by the lack of inclusivity in such a way that galvanizes the reader to relate and reflect on their own experience enough to want to have a conversation.
