          Why Israel&#039;s Schools Merit a US Boycott
    
          January 13, 2016

          January 13, 2016

          How to Make Sense of Anti-Latino Racism
    
          January 13, 2016
    
          The idea that some cultures are unchangeably “backward” and hence inassimilable is the basis for the new concept called “cultural racism.” And it is cultural racism, not the diversity of cultures, that threatens the aspirational democratic values that are often articulated yet too rarely achieved in the United States.

          Black Students Win UC Prison Divestment
    
          January 13, 2016

          How to Read Like David Bowie
    
          January 13, 2016
    
          "David Bowie Is," an exhibition that started its international tour in London in 2013, garnered a lot of attention for its surprising diversity and depth. One of the exhibition's most interesting features was a selection from the musician and pop star's library. As a tribute to him, we present that book list as first published by Open Books Toronto when the exhibition reached that city.
