D. Hirsch and others, by means of Disney World's EPCOT middle, and via the Smithsonian establishment. unlike those, she areas the writings of Zora Neale Hurston, Maxine Hong Kingston, Gloria Anzaldúa, and Leslie Marmon Silko, whose works version a cultural literacy that weaves connections throughout many neighborhood knowledges and plenty of methods of knowing.
