What is antiracism and antiracist pedagogy?
“Anti-racism is the active process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies and practices and attitudes, so that power is redistributed and shared equitably” (NAC International Perspectives: Women and Global Solidarity).
“Antiracist Pedagogy is a paradigm located within Critical Theory utilized to explain and counteract the persistence and impact of racism” (Alda M. Blakeney, 2005).
What will the Antiracist Pedagogy FIG do?
The Antiracist Pedagogy FIG will model best practices in faculty inquiry by
- Developing a question
