Education and Racism: An Action Manual.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This document is the culmination of a year of cooperative effort between the Michigan Education Association's Human Relations Division and the Human Relations Section of the National Education Association Teacher Rights. These two groups spent the 1971-72 school year working together, with invaluable assistance from New Perspectives on Race, Inc. to develop a program that addresses itself to institutional racism, the most crucial issue confronting the American education system. The contents are organized in two parts. Part I, "Racism and its manifestations in education," includes discussions of such topics as prejudice, racism, racist behaviors to be avoided, and becoming "antiracist/racists." Part II, "Antiracism activities," includes discussions of a curriculum on racism, and a workshop design for racism. The latter is described in some detail. The design for a different kind of racism workshop for teachers was developed cooperatively with the Michigan Education Association's Office of Human Relations, N.E.A. Teacher Rights, and New Perspectives on Race. Appendix A includes racial checklists and inventories, while appendix B comprises group dynamics tools. (Author/JM)
