The books reviewed here communicate that as educators, we can support academic success for all students by expanding understandings about home/community literacies. We can do this by tapping into the valuable resources that communities and families can provide. In particular, these texts focus on the expertise in communities too often marginalized in the curricular picture, helping us recognize why and how we must engage in educational efforts that liberate and educate rather than alienate and, as a result, oppress opportunities for students to succeed. Reviewed are: (Valerie Kinloch); (Lisa Delpit); (Althier M. Lazar, Patricia A. Edwards, and Gwendolyn Thompson McMillon; (Mark Warren and Karen Mapp).
