Stovall’s talk provides a researchers’ account of his participation in a community process to design a neighborhood public high school in Chicago. It offers important lessons about school creation while remaining accountable to community demands in the design of a school with a justice-centered agenda. In seeking to expand the uses of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Critical Race Praxis (CRP), Stovall encourages educational practitioners to spend less time with abstract theories and more with communities that make concerted efforts to change their conditions. Included in this discussion are critical questions that underline the importance of community participation and the difficulties of remaining responsible to a community based initiative while operating under the auspices of large school districts.
