This chapter explores how incorporating global literature into the curriculum helped to re-envision teaching of English as a New Language (ENL) and how the literature helped the students to re-envision themselves. "Braided histories" were also present in another book that made a big impression on the ENL students, Richard Wright and the Library Card by William Miller and R. Gregory Christie. The book focuses on an experience Richard Wright (1945) recounted in Black Boy. Global literature included many books from the United States, particularly stories about the Civil Rights Movement. These stories and characters offered students additional dimension to their expanding critical thought about the struggles and inequity that exist in the world and which they experience. Using global literature through the inquiry group helped to widen the curriculum during a time when a detrimental narrowing of the curriculum is seen with so much focused on test preparation.
