Racial Literacy

There's no escaping the issue of race. Whether you're watching TV, reading about current events, or using social media, it's bound to come up. While seemingly everyone has an opinion about race, many people lack the tools to properly discuss the subject. With this eye-opening series, students will be given context, examples, and definitions behind evolving concepts like racial microaggressions, cultural appropriation, and institutional racism. They'll not only learn how power and privilege intersect but how race, class, and gender do, too. Taking an active approach, this series encourages students to apply what they discover here to historical events, the current political movements now making history, and their own lives. Features include: Empowers students to recognize and actively combat racism in their everyday lives. Cultural sensitivity is a topic with ever growing interest and relevance as revolutionary political and social movements like #BlackLivesMatter gain influence. Supports Social Justice Standards for Teaching Tolerance advocated by the Southern Poverty Law Center, instructing students to act against racism. Robust Chapter Notes and Further Reading sections provide many resources for further education.
