News articles describing historically marginalized students as “fragile and perpetually vulnerable to victimization” contrasted sharply with what I was hearing in my interviews with Black and Latinx students. The students I interviewed were asking for access to counterspaces, safe spaces that would enable radical growth. Radical growth is the development of ideas and narratives that challenge dominant representations of and notions about their marginalized identities. It is these needs and opportunities for radical growth that are explored in this book.

I feel

I feel most colored

when I am thrown against a sharp white background....Among the thousand white persons, I am a dark rock surged upon, and overswept,


but through it all, I remain myself. 

~Zora Neale Hurston
