In A Single Garment, Genevieve Siegel-Hawley explores the leadership, policies, and practices that support contemporary school integration. Drawing on a wide range of sources, as well as her own experience as a parent, former student, and teacher, Siegel‐Hawley provides a richly layered account of four Richmond, Virginia schools, each committed to building successful, diverse communities as a foundation for a just, democratic society.

Praise

Beginning with a compelling and deeply personal letter to her daughter, Genevieve Siegel-Hawley has written a book rooted in her unwavering commitment to school integration as a mechanism for creating a more racially just society. Based on rich evidence from four schools, Siegel-Hawley provides powerful strategies for educators, policy makers, and parents who are committed to school integration. — John B. Diamond, Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education, University of Wisconsin–Madison

Informed by a deep knowledge of new research on the benefits of integration, this book tells the story of schools and their communities working for change in our segregated society. It is about four schools and their successes and challenges told by an accomplished scholar who brings multiple perspectives and her lived experience into a rich discussion of what we can learn from their efforts. This book is an oasis of hope and vision for our educators and young families. — Gary Orfield, Distinguished Professor & codirector, Civil Rights Project, University of California, Los Angeles
