In May 2006, armed only with a small rucksack and a staff, Tony Kevin, an overweight, sedentary, 63-year-old former diplomat, set off on an eight-week trek across Spain. But this was not just a very long walk — it was a pilgrimage. From Granada, in the southeast, to Santiago de Compostela, in the far northwest, Tony followed the Via Mozarabe and the Via de la Plata, two of the many pilgrim trails that crisscross Spain and Portugal and that all lead to a single destination.

Lots of Spanish history to assist in understanding the country you are blessed to walk through (maybe too much for some people)

For many years to come, race will continue to be a source of controversy and conflict in American society. For many of us it will continue to shape where we live, pray, go to school, and socialize. We cannot simply wish away the existence of race or racism, but we can take steps to lessen the ways in which the categories trap and confine us. Educators, who should be committed to helping young people realize their intellectual potential, have a responsibility to help them find ways to expand identities related to race.

A must read for all interested in equity in education. Noguera brilliantly exposes covert biases, making the invisible visible. The subtleties of often unintentional systematic and individual, beliefs and actions, that tragically keep culturally and linguistically diverse students marginalised and powerless.
