Who Will Make America Great Again? "Black People, of Course…"
King, Joyce E.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p946-956 2017
The author reflects on the relevance of her intellectual journey through the Black consciousness movement in the 1960s to her pedagogy teaching from a Black Studies theoretical perspective on liberating knowledge. This pedagogical approach aims to fortify education students' consciousness regarding a systemic understanding of how racism and domination work. The argument is that this approach is especially needed given the current regime. Using the 1968 poem by Amiri Baraka that asked: 'Who Will Survive America?' the author illustrates content and pedagogy that can respond to the presidential campaign slogan understood as "making America white again."
