Released: December 2016

CDF Freedom Schools – the vision of Marian Wright Edelman – are in essence an educational paradigm shift. It’s a powerful experience where students of color, primarily African-American and Latino, engage in culturally competent instruction with a goal of building strong, literate, and confidant children prepared to make a difference in themselves, their families, communities, nation and the world. In Other Words: Stories from Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools® Sites in California seeks to capture the uniqueness and transformative power of CDF Freedom Schools through those who live it – the scholars, servant leader interns, trainers, parents, and administrators.
