This media review focuses on one of "Atlanta"'s episodes entitled "FUBU." The episode is utilized as a proxy to provide a critique of American society and its power relations in everyday life.

Montgomery, Nicholl – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2016
The Black Lives Matter movement has brought much needed attention to the police brutality that has plagued Black communities nationwide for decades. This increased attention has sparked much needed dialogue about what it means to be Black in America. Unfortunately, many of these conversations continue to leave Black women voiceless. This lack of…

Gorski, Paul C. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2012
A rich history of scholarship has demonstrated the ways in which popular stereotypes of disenfranchised communities, including people living in poverty, affect individual biases and preconceptions. Less attention has been paid to the ways in which such stereotypes help frame policy and practice responses regarding social problems, such as the…

Baszile, Denise Taliaferro – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2009
Although hip hop culture has been one of the most significant urban youth movements over the last three decades, it has only recently gained attention within the educational literature as a force to be reckoned with. And even then, much of the literature seeks to understand how hip hop can be used to engage students in the official school…

Crockett, Michele D.; Buckley, Lecretia A. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2009
This article is about locating equity concerns "within" epistemic processes in school mathematics professional development.

We argue that teaching the dynamics of globalization to education students is an important aspect of teaching for social justice and for the development of critical awareness, thinking, and sensitivity.

Chinnery, Ann – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2008
According to Kevin Kumashiro (2004), education toward a socially just society requires a commitment to challenge common sense notions or assumptions about the world and about teaching and learning. Recalling Audre Lorde's (1984) classic essay, "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House," I focus on three common sense notions and…

Van Galen, Jane – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2008
In this article, I argue for a closer read of the daily "class work" of teachers, as posited by Reay, 1998. In developing exploratory class portraits of four teachers who occupy distinctive social positions (two from working-class homes now teaching upper-middle-class children and two from upper-middle-class homes now teaching poor children), I…

Godfrey, Phoebe C. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2008
This article analyzes the legal classification of Mexican Americans as "other white" as argued in a number of critical court cases that beginning in the 1930s up to the 1970s attempted to desegregate public schools in Texas. Since the Texas constitution declared school segregation as being only for "colored children," Mexican…

Duquaine-Watson, Jillian M. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2007
Feminist analyses of the "chilly climate" have documented the ways in which women have been and continue to be marginalized within institutions of higher education.

Castagno, Angelina E.; Lee, Stacey J. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2007
This article examines one university's policies regarding Native mascots and ethnic fraud through a Tribal Critical Race Theory analytic lens. Using the principle of interest convergence, we argue that institutions of higher education allow and even work actively towards a particular form or level of diversity, but they do not extend it far…

Wiest, Lynda R.; Higgins, Heidi J.; Frost, Janet Hart – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2007
In this article, we argue that many adults lack the "numeracy" needed to function in a maximally effective manner in their vocational, civic, and personal lives. We believe schools need to foster skills in quantitative literacy (QL), an inclination and ability to make reasoned decisions using general world knowledge and fundamental…

Ware, Linda – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2006
This essay comments on parenting experiences with attention to both the resonances as well as the variant chords struck over a lifetime. Specifically, it hopes to convey the complexity of authorship concerns in the example of overlapping lives parents and their disabled child share.
