Shade It Black has been used in courses taught at Brown University, Norwich University, and Jamestown Community College. We believe it has also been assigned to students at UNLV and Portland State University, though we are not certain. And, of course, it has been chosen by Miami University as their 2012 Summer reading program selection. It has also been used in high school courses in Idaho and California. If you know of other educational institutions whose faculty have assigned the book, please let us know.
