A few weeks ago, I downloaded the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin on my e-reader so I could read it during my commute.
I share this account with my 8-year-old twins. One of them said: “Fisher is the most boring book ever. It’s just about some girl who couldn’t get into college.”
I can’t believe she read enough of the opinion to know what the case was about!
I’ve been thinking about the Fisher decision as the events of this past week have highlighted how much race matters. For more on this topic, see The Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action Case Reminds Us Why #WeNeedDiverseBooks.
