Discourses for Social Justice Education: The Web of Racism and the Web of Resistance
Rozas, Lisa Werkmeister; Miller, Joshua
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v18 n1-2 p24-39 2009
This article presents two conceptual frames to help with teaching about issues of race and racism. First the concept of the web of racism describes a matrix that helps students understand the depth of damage racism has instilled in contemporary U.S. society. Second, the web of resistance offers a model of anti-racist activities to help students participate in the fight to end systemic racism. The importance of placing racism in a historical context is emphasized as are the differential reactions of white students and students of color to this material. (Contains 2 figures.)
