It's our one-year anniversary! Know-It-All: The ABCs of Education is turning one. For this very special episode of Know-It-All, we are giving back the racial bribe, as Michelle Alexander implored us to do in The New Jim Crow, and as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was in the process of doing before he was assassinated.

We have assembled an all-star cast to bridge the racial divide and tackle poverty. Dr. Deborah Hicks is the author of The Road Out: A Teacher's Odyssey in Poor America, in which she breathes life into the two-dimensional caricature that so often permeates the national consciousness when it comes to poor whites. An eerily familiar story for children of color. Dr. Ivory Toldson is a scholar of world renown who is annihilating stereotypes about black children through his extensive research and publications about racial equity. Dr. Paul Gorski is a multicultural education expert who is debunking the culture of poverty myth through works such as his recent book, Reaching and Teaching Students in Poverty.

Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which works with schools and other organizations to create education equity plans and promote equity in education in compliance with federal law.
