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. A landmark collection arguing that engaging with race at both conceptual and practical levels is a priority for educators. This work: builds a stronger engagement of race-based analysis in the field of critical pedagogy; brings together a melange of theories on race, such as Afro-centric, Latino-based, and postcolonial perspectives; includes historical studies, and social justice ideas on activism in education; and, questions popular concepts, such as white privilege, color-blind perspectives and race-neutral pedagogies.
