Summary:
"Sing a Rhythm, Dance a Blues reimagines what education might look like if schools placed the thriving of Black and Brown girls at their center. Morris brings together research and real life in this chorus of interviews, case studies, and the testimonies of remarkable people who work successfully with girls of color. The result is this radiant manifesto -- a guide to moving away from punishment, trauma, and discrimination and toward safety, justice, and genuine community in our schools." -- Back cover.
