Our Schools/Our Selves: Spring 2010

Anti-Racism in Education: Missing in Action
June 1, 2010

Anti-Racism in Education: Missing In Action, a book I am glad to be part of, addresses needs across the educational spectrum, from primary school up to and including university, and addresses quite directly the link to our workplaces and to ongoing issues of societal and institutional racism. It also looks at the relationship between education and other systems in which racialized and Aboriginal peoples face on-going challenges, e.g., children’s aid societies and law enforcement. With sections looking at the history of anti-racism in schools and society, with particular focus on Aboriginal/Indigenous issues and Afrocentric pedagogies, and providing through- out an examination of intersectional issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities, this book brilliantly navigates the waters we need to cross in order to engage our students and enable them to be engaged in our communities and workplaces as knowledgeable and active agents for change.”
