Abstract:

As an idealistic 23-year-old English teacher at Wilson High School in Long Beach, California, Erin Gruwell confronted a room of "unteachable, at-risk" students. One day she intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature, and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust- only to be met by uncomprehending looks. So she and her students undertook a life-changing odyssey against intolerance and misunderstanding.
