W.E.B. Du Bois and Filipino/a American Exposure Programs to the Philippines: Race Class Analysis in an Epoch of "Global Apartheid"
Viola, Michael Joseph
Race, Ethnicity and Education, v19 n3 p500-523 2016
The article highlights the ongoing relevance of W.E.B. Du Bois for the global analysis of race and class. Engaging scholarly debates that have ensued within the educational subfields of critical race theory (CRT) and (revolutionary) critical pedagogy, the article explores how a deeper engagement with Du Bois's ideas contributes theoretically and methodologically to these two subfields. Of particular focus is Du Bois's conceptualization of a "guiding hundredth," which he forwarded as a corrective to his ideas of a "talented tenth." The article also offers a case study analysis of the film "Sounds of a New Hope," which documents a hip hop exposure program to the Philippines. The case study draws upon Du Bois's "guiding hundredth" for a twenty-first century context as a Filipino American cultural worker utilizes hip hop to articulate, analyze, and alter the lived experiences for Filipino/a Americans in a global diaspora.
