About the Author

Raymond D. Terrell, EdD, served as special assistant to the dean for diversity initiatives in the School of Education and Allied Professions at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. A former secondary English teacher, elementary school principal, professor of educational administration, and dean of the School of Education at California State University, Los Angeles, he has more than 40 years of professional experience with diversity and equity issues. Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.


"I use this book in a doctoral preparation course for teachers, K-12 administrators, county office personnel, and higher education folks. One of the assignments for this course is a cultural autobiography as recommended in this book. This exercise has been powerful. Students are required to write and share their cultural autobiographies in class. The stories shared by students have been amazing. There are stories of students who claim they were not aware or exposed to diversity growing up, and students who are immersed in diversity issues daily. This book is a great guide in helping future school leaders strive to become culturally proficient." -- Tony Serna, Assistant Professor "The authors have been brave enough to broach subjects that are usually difficult to confront, and they gently encourage everyone to join them on their journey of love and equity for all learners. Kudos are due!" -- Lori L. Grossman, Instructional Coordinator "This book is like a self-help book that guides you through your own awareness of 'self,' but in this case it is specific to cultural perceptions and education." -- Monica Uphoff, Director of Assessment "Every school leader who desires to be a change agent should travel the journey described in this pioneering book. This is a powerful book that will change your life and profession." -- Ann N. Chlebicki, Professor "Provides an opportunity for individual reflection as opposed to a more social network of exploration. The idea of a cultural autobiography is compelling and necessary for people to truly extend their journey of understanding themselves and others." -- Denise Seguine, Chief Academic Officer "Recognizing that our core values are central to our leadership style, this book takes you on a self-reflection journey of cultural competence. The authors' masterful developmental process leads you to a place of social responsibility, which is so critical for the mosaic that defines education today. Everyone connected to schools, from parents to superintendents, needs to take this journey." -- Rosemary Papa, Del and Jewell Lewis Chair of Learner-Centered Leadership "Terrell and Lindsey take a new and refreshing approach. They challenge readers to actively interrogate the effects of their own experience on the way they interact with the diversity of the school." -- Nicki King, Youth and Family Development Specialist "An excellent text for school leadership classes as well as for those preparing for teacher education. The ability to make change, starting from within, empowers the individual to educate without barriers." -- Susan M. Lara, Professor and Vice President for Student Services
