Their demand that all Black lives have value was simple, yet visionary — especially in its call to highlight the most marginalized Black lives, including LGBTQ folks, women, and Black immigrant lives. Teacher education needs to equip teachers to promote an understanding of the profound nature of gender inequity and to overcome the resultant bafflers to learning. We do, however, see this collection as playing an important role in highlighting the ways educators can and should make their classrooms and schools sites of resistance to white supremacy and anti-Blackness, as well as sites for knowing the hope and beauty in Blackness.

The ferocity of racism in the United States against black minds and black bodies demands that teachers fight back.

Command and control lecture and rote memorization are not effective means of teaching for Black lives. The gender parity index for secondary and higher education also tends to increase. In particular, after the World Conference on Education for All, women's education received special attention in Africa and achieved rapid development. To improve practice, teachers, head teachers and administrators, need training and their ways of working need to be endorsed and supported by the community.
