You Better Recognize!: The Arts as Social Justice for African American Students
Hanley, Mary Stone
Equity & Excellence in Education, v44 n3 p420-444 2011
Social justice is a complex theory and practice that includes the equitable redistribution of resources and the recognition of culture. This is a report about the Tubman Theater Project, a culturally relevant drama program in which African American middle and high school students confronted racism and classism, as well as their unexamined internalized oppression while constructing a positive racial identity as they developed, rehearsed, and performed plays generated from their own lived experiences. A culturally relevant arts model emerged from a synthesis of the data. (Contains 1 figure, 4 tables, and 4 notes.)
