    3.5- Collins’ domains of power (Structural, Disciplinary, Cultural, and Interpersonal) provide a useful framework for the analysis of racism. Her reframing of “facts” as dependent on those in power rather than immutable truths lands well in the post-truth era. I also appreciate her emphasis on visionary pragmatism and everyday resistance to oppressive structures.

    Un livre à mettre entre toutes les mains ! Je suis une grande fan du travail de Patricia Hill Collins, et ce volume va certainement me guider dans la manière dont j'aborde l'enseignement.

    I think this is an excellent book. Very accessible even for those without a formal or higher education type familiarity with social justice. I would highly recommend this book as an excellent introduction to modern discussion about race.
