In Forever Free, Dr. Bailey charts the journey of her nonprofit, Freedom Readers. From a childhood shaped by books to a career promoting the love of reading, she describes the hurdles and rewards of academia, teaching, mobilizing, and fundraising. She outlines clearly and persuasively how Freedom Readers’ one-to-one tutoring model has worked in the rural South, and how it can work across the US. This book will inspire and empower readers, and should be placed in the hands of educators and organizers at every level.
Now available! Forever Free, a book by Freedom Readers CEO Tracy Swinton Bailey, PhD.
“[An] inspirational account… Bailey doesn’t hold back in criticizing systemic inequalities in public schools and society at large, but her optimism shines through. Educators, parents, and school administrators will want to take a look.” — Publishers Weekly
