"I Worry about My Community": African American Women Utilizing Communal Notions of Citizenship in the Social Studies Classroom
Vickery, Amanda E.
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v18 n1 p28-44 2016
This qualitative multiple case study utilizes a Black feminist ethic of caring (Collins, 2009; Thompson, 1998) to explore how three African American women social studies teachers draw on their personal and community knowledge to conceptualize and teach the construct of citizenship to their students of color. Instead of conveying traditional notions of citizenship that value blind patriotism to the nation-state and individualism, they instead chose to teach citizenship as relational and centered on uplifting their cultural community. This study hopes to shed light on how critical notions of citizenship may be presented and utilized in classrooms.
