Christian WalkesChristian Walkes, an Educational Studies student entering his second year, recently published a book review in the prestigious Teachers College Record. The review outlines sj Miller's About Gender Identity Justice in Schools and Communities (2019) and its framework for gender identity justice and offers considerations grounded in Afro-pessimism's perspective. As a researcher interested in patterns of social stratification in education, sj Miller’s book proves to be timely given the shifting legal protections for gender complex identities in the United States. When asked about the review, Christian stated, "Invitation to write in this prestigious journal bears testament to those invested in my academic and professional growth." He gives special thanks to his advisor, Shameka Powell, who made this opportunity possible through their rigorous academic training and mentorship.
