America is deeply divided when it comes to race. Nowhere are those divisions more apparent than in our city's schools. Border Crossers challenges the status quo of racial separation by building bridges between people that might otherwise never interact. — Dr. Pedro Noguera, Border Crossers Advisory Board Member and Director of the Metropolitan Center for Urban Education at New York University
