The Evolving Significance of Race: Living, Learning, and Teaching
Hughes, Sherick A., Ed.; Berry, Theodorea Regina, Ed.
Peter Lang New York
Individuals are living, learning, and teaching by questioning how to address race in a society that consistently prefers to see itself as colorblind, a society claiming to seek a "post-racial" existence. This edited volume offers evidence of the evolving significance of race from a diverse group of male and female contributors self-identifying as Black, Latino, Asian, White, Gay, Lesbian, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim. Individuals' attempts to provide every child and adult learner with what they need--equity--to make the most of their educational experiences--excellence--are still consciously and unconsciously thwarted by the ingrained nature of racism in this society. This point becomes obvious when individuals begin teaching those audiences that represent diverse lived experiences of race about the changing significance of race and how to develop a more critical, reflexive lens focused upon the politics of race. This book invites readers to co-construct and implement a critical race pedagogy that reflects both an acknowledgment of the evolving significance of race and opportunities for hope via education.
