Section Description

This course will introduce students to key readings in theories and histories of the relationship among race, justice, and education. Starting with abolitionists in the 19th century, we will examine how education has played a key role in encouraging racial equity and justice, as well as been a key battleground in education-related court cases and policies. We will explore this through readings in theory, history, cases, educational policy, understanding, too, that this issues have affected different racialized categories and intersecting identities in divergent ways. Readings will include Anna Julia Cooper, W. E. B. Du Bois, Carter G. Woodson, Audre Lorde, Gloria Anzaldúa, Sandy Grande, John Borrows, among others, who contribute to the complex analysis of justice as it relates to learning, educational systems, and race.

Section Expectation
