Tears Worth Telling: Urban Teaching and the Possibilities of Racial Justice
Matias, Cheryl E.
Multicultural Perspectives, v15 n4 p187-193 2013
Silencing race dialogue in urban classrooms is painful for students of color. The author of this article, an urban teacher, documents her resistance to colorblind racism by strategically including race in daily classroom practices. She argues that acknowledging emotionality and Whiteness are essential steps that teachers must take to reinvest in prolonged racially-just projects.
