Hybrid Chronicles: Biracial and Biethnic Perspectives on the Pedagogy of Unlearning Racism
Wahab, Stephanie; Gibson, Sunshine T.
Qualitative Report, v12 n3 p414-429 Sep 2007
This article details an autoethnography project of our odysseys into the pedagogy of unlearning racism. Our knowledge creation process forced us to re-envision both our locations in, and pedagogy of, anti-racism work, with particular attention to the challenges and dangers of teaching about, to, and from White privilege within social work. In the end, we are both troubled and invigorated by what we experienced, witnessed, and supported. By asking people of color to share their personal narratives of racism in the presence of Whites, teachers, facilitators, and diversity trainers stand to continue privileging Whiteness where Whites benefit and learn at the expense of people of color. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
