Students researched social movements from around the world that are engaged in collective struggles to transform unequal and exclusionary educational practices. These are the untold and silenced stories about "people power." You will hear the stories of youth who have become student activists on college campus, parents who have become community organizers, schools that are engaged in the daily struggled to become safe spaces for their gay and lesbian students, the transnational movement for disability rights, and the challenges in constructing multicultural education for social justice.

These stories tell us one thing over and over again – that while the process of changing systems is slow and complex and ridden with contradictions – inequality and injustice cannot prevail. “The revolution” as the African-American poet Gil Scott Heron puts it “will not be televised… the revolution is live.”
