Black Women and Social Justice Education

Free sample

 Focuses on Black women’s experiences and expertise in order to advance educational philosophy and provide practical tools for social justice pedagogy.
Black Women and Social Justice Education explores Black women’s experiences and expertise in teaching and learning about justice in a range of formal and informal educational settings. Linking historical accounts with groundbreaking contributions by new and rising leaders in the field, it examines, evaluates, establishes, and reinforces Black women’s commitment to social justice in education at all levels. Authors offer resource guides, personal reflections, bibliographies, and best practices for broad use and reference in communities, schools, universities, and nonprofit organizations. Collectively, their work promises to further enrich social justice education (SJE)—a critical pedagogy that combines intersectionality and human rights perspectives—and to deepen our understanding of the impact of SJE innovations on the humanities, social sciences, higher education, school development, and the broader professional world. This volume expands discussions of academic institutions and the communities they were built to serve.

“This is an exciting and engaging text that provides invaluable insights and strategies used by Black women as they engage in their justice work. These strategies will be helpful for diversity trainers, social justice educators, administrators, and anyone interested in resisting oppression and furthering social justice goals in higher education.” — Sabrina Ross, coeditor of Beyond Retention: Cultivating Spaces of Equity, Justice, and Fairness for Women of Color in U.S. Higher Education

“Uplifting, powerful, and inspirational.” — Tara L. Parker, coauthor of The State of Developmental Education: Higher Education and Public Policy Priorities
