Teaching for Social Justice: Experiences and Epiphanies
Ringo, Saroja
Multicultural Perspectives, v10 n4 p229-233 Oct 2008
If people believe that identities are in large part socially constructed, they might also agree that the morals and values they each hold may also be a product of their experiences as social beings. The author's experiences with othering led her to an epiphany about the importance of teaching for social justice and guided her work as a teacher educator. Here, the author shares how her husband experienced racism when he was arrested by the police one night because he fit the profile of a man who allegedly shot a white couple. The horrific acts of othering that her husband experienced made the author learn about the existence and impact of social injustice.
