Erica Snowden, Director of Equity and Multicultural Education at Friends' Central, has contributed to a new book to help white teachers understand, respect, and connect to the Beautiful Brilliant Black Girls in their classrooms and communities.

Corwin, a publisher of resources for K-12 educators, announced the release of Teaching Beautiful Brilliant Black Girls, edited by Omobolade Delano-Oriaran, Marguerite W. Penick, Shemariah J. Arki, Ali Michael, Orinthia Swindell, and Eddie Moore Jr. The volume contains more than 80 contributing Authors, including Erica Snowden who wrote:

  • Chapter 38. Respect Black Girls: Prioritize, Embrace, and Value
  • Chapter 48. Vignette: Diamonds: Beautiful, Brilliant, Black

Dan Alpert, Program Director and Publisher at Corwin said, “We are at a moment of moral reckoning over race in our country. For far too long, we have disrespected and suppressed the voices, wisdom, and extraordinary strength of Black girls in our schools. We are driven by a moral imperative to affirm the beauty and brilliance of Black girls and provide them equitable access to culturally responsive education and sustaining education. This edited volume will help white teachers do just that.”

The book is a collective call to action for educational justice and fairness for all Black Girls—Beautiful and Brilliant—and focuses on transforming how Black girls are understood, respected and taught. The six Editors and more than 80 Contributing Authors intentionally present the harrowing experiences Black girls endure and provide readers with an understanding of Black girls’ beauty, talents and brilliance. 

Chapters rooted in scholarship, lived experiences and practice and rich with diverse content, companion videos, and practical resources centering Black female protagonists, will call willing and knowledgeable educators to disrupt and transform their learning spaces.  

"Teaching Beautiful Brilliant Black Girls is a timely and insightful volume that addresses the amazing diversity and complexity of Black girls and their triumphs and challenges. The editorial team led by Dr. Bola has assembled a stellar group of authors that bring us the essence of Black Girl Joy. This is a must-read and should be in the library of anybody who cares about doing right by Black girls."
