A Springer publishing web page promoting the book reports: “This powerful and timely analysis takes stock of race and education sixty years after the historic Brown vs. Board of Education decision. This volume examines education as one of the most visible markers for racial disparities in the U.S. as well as one of its most visible frontiers for racial justice. Featuring original research, educators’ insights, and perspectives from communities of color, it documents the complex impact of social/educational policy on social progress.”

Winn holds UW-Madison’s Susan J. Cellmer Distinguished Chair in English Education and is a professor of languages and literacy with the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

Winn co-authored the chapter with her partner, Lawrence T. Winn, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in Civil Society and Community Research with UW-Madison’s School of Human Ecology. Their chapter is titled, “ ‘There’s Nothing for Us Here’: Black Families Navigating the School/Prison Nexus 60 Years After.”
