Through individual stories, essays, poetry, and critical analyses,Experiencing Race, Class, and Gender in the United States, Sixth Edition, introduces issues of race, class, and gender within an interdisciplinary framework. Themes of identity, power, and change are examined from many different perspectives and voices. Unlike most texts that focus on minorities victimized by discrimination, this anthology includes the experiences of the privileged and of those who resist change, and reinforces students’ understanding that they can effect changes in their lives and in society.
