Thoughts on Racial Democratic Education and Moral Virtue
Lebron, Chris
Theory and Research in Education, v13 n2 p155-164 Jul 2015
The taking of Black life by state authorities is a long-standing tragic tradition in America. However, in recent years, instances of Black death have gained wider media attention. This is a potentially important teaching moment, especially as it regards moral virtue and racism. In this article, I argue that Blacks have been put through a kind of educational regimen on account of racism and that moral imagination is crucial to the development of Whites' moral virtue. I conclude by suggesting that radicalism broadly construed needs to return as part of Blacks' political sensibilities.
