Featuring writings not only from pioneers in this field of study, but also from more recently established and emerging scholars, the anthology draws from diverse disciplines including ethnic studies, history, educational leadership, communication, Native American studies, Latinx studies, and creative writing. The contributing authors have been on the frontlines, teaching on topics that exemplify the very reasons why race and ethnicity still matter so deeply as the longstanding results of conquest, slavery, and migration. These educators, in many cases, have also been involved on the ground, serving as grassroots advocates in their communities and in the world at large.
Intended for undergraduate audiences, Challenging Inequalities is conceptually and theoretically informed, yet accessible in style and tone. Its fresh combination of academic rigor and personal perspectives is rooted in the call to activism and is well suited to courses in ethnic studies, sociology, race and ethnicity, counseling, and education.

Challenging Inequalities is a major resource for understanding the persistence of racial, ethnic, and immigrant-related division and exploitation in the United States. It is a must-read volume for anyone seeking to understand why social inequality still matters, including for groups gaining a greater social presence such as Middle Easterners and Latin American indigenous immigrants.
