About the Book
“Employing her own voice and the voices of her colleagues and students, Dr. Wilson-Cone invites readers to look deeply into their own souls and spirits to discover the roots of multicultural diversity in their own lives. In the midst of today’s forces which tend to denigrate various cultures and ethnicities, this valuable resource is a light in the darkness and ought to be in the possession of those who seek to explore openness and inclusiveness in the teaching and learning process” (Rev. Cameron Byrd, DMin, retired certified educator, Association for Clinical Pastoral Education).
