Description - Critical Pedagogy and Race by Zeus Leonardo
Critical Pedagogy and Race argues that a rigorous engagement with race is a priority for educators concerned with equality in schools and in society. Comprising twelve scholarly contributions, the book brings together a melange of theories on race, including Afro-centric, Latino-based and postcolonial perspectives, as well as historical studies, and social justice ideas on activism in education. The contributors endorse racial analysis, problematize it, expand it, and in the end enrich it. In doing so, they question popular concepts such as white privilege, color-blind perspectives, and race-neutral pedagogies. The publication of this volume marks a shift by strengthening race-based analysis in critical pedagogy, a field which has traditionally focused on class relations.
