Speak Truth and Shame the Devil: An Ethnodrama in Response to Racism in the Academy
Ward Randolph, Adah; Weems, Mary E.
Qualitative Inquiry, v16 n5 p310-313 2010
This ethnodrama examines how two African American women experience racism in the academe. Both scholars examine the social/political context of racism in higher education and its manifestation in institutional practices. Both authors seek to "speak truth and shame the devil" by examining institutional responses to the racism they encounter in their courses. The authors conclude by sharing how educational leaders, particularly chairs, deans, and other academics can address racism institutionally.
