Framing Race Talk in World History Classrooms: A Case Study of the Haitian Revolution
King, LaGarrett; Woodson, Ashley; Dozono, Tadashi
Educational Foundations, v33 n1-4 p3-27 2020
In this article, the authors focus on ways to structure conversations about racism in world history classrooms through a case study of race and racism in Haiti at the turn of the 19th century. Drawing on the events of the Haitian Revolution, the authors describe how identifying patterns of racial hierarchy can provide a framework for talking about race from a world-scale perspective. While pedagogical strategies for teaching about the Haitian Revolution have been discussed before (Peck-Bartle, 2020; Peguero, 1998), the authors emphasize how world history teachers might present the relevance of Haitian struggles for human dignity and self-determination as a way to further develop students' understandings of race. The objective is to support world history teachers in leading conversations about race as a historical and global construct. [Note: The page range (3-17) shown on the PDF is incorrect.
