About this title


Incorporating a wide range of examples from a multitude of environments, this is a book for everyone who teaches, in every type of setting. 

About the Author:

Kikanza Nuri-Robins helps people to close the gap between what they say they are and what they actually do.  Whether she is in a corporate boardroom, the fireside room of a retreat center, or a convention center auditorium, Kikanza uses her skills and insights to help people and organizations that are in transition – or ought to be.  She shares her observations and recommendations with clarity and candor, while gently encouraging them to face the difficult situations that challenge their skill sets and their values.  She leads people to this growing edge with unswerving focus, an understanding heart, and laughter that rises from the seat of her soul.


Since 1978, Kikanza has worked as an organizational development consultant in a variety of settings includ­ing education, health care, criminal justice, and religion, focusing on leadership development, change management, and cultural proficiency. Her clients range from school districts, to university faculty, to government offices and non-profit organizations.  The connecting thread is her passion for working with people who want to making a difference for others.


Kikanza studied at Occidental College, the University of Southern California, and the San Francisco Theological Seminary.  She is the author of many articles and five books, including: Cultural Proficiency and Culturally Proficient Responses to the LGBT Communities. Kikanza lives in Los Angeles where she spends her discretionary time as a textile artist.

Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.

Delores B. Lindsey, Ph.D., retired as Associate Professor at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) and continues to serve as an instructor in the Joint Doctoral Program. While a full-time faculty member at CSUSM for nine years, she served as the Education Administration Program coordinator for six and taught in the Master’s degree program option for Education Administration and Leadership as well as the Joint Doctoral Program. Prior to coming to the CSUSM, she was Visiting Faculty at Pepperdine University in the Master of Arts in Education Leadership program and Educational Leadership doctoral program. Dr. Lindsey served as a middle grade and high school teacher, assistant principal, principal, and county office of education administrator. She received her Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University. Her primary area of research is creating, leading, and sustaining Culturally Proficient teaching and learning environments. She is coauthor of numerous articles and books: Culturally Proficient Instruction: A guide for people who teach, 3rd ed. (2012), Culturally Proficient Coaching: Supporting educators to create equitable schools (2007), Culturally Proficient Learning Communities: Confronting inequities through collaborative inquiry (2009) and A Culturally Proficient response to the common core: Ensuring equity through professional learning (2015). 


Using the lens of Cultural Proficiency, Dr. Lindsey helps educational leaders examine their policies and practices, as well as their individual beliefs and values about cross-cultural communication. Her message to her audiences focuses on socially just educational practices and diversity as assets to be nurtured. Dr. Lindsey facilitates educators to develop their own inquiry and action research. Her favorite reflective questions are: Who are we?  and Are we who we say we are? Often, her favorite co-lecturer and co-author, Dr. Randall Lindsey, also her husband, joins her to co-teach.

Raymond D. Terrell, EdD, served as special assistant to the dean for diversity initiatives in the School of Education and Allied Professions at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. A former secondary English teacher, elementary school principal, professor of educational administration, and dean of the School of Education at California State University, Los Angeles, he has more than 40 years of professional experience with diversity and equity issues.
