Although multicultural education has made significant gains in recent years, with many courses specifically devoted to the topic in both undergraduate and graduate education programs, and more scholars of color teaching in these programs, these victories bring with them a number of pedagogic dilemmas. Most students in these programs are not themselves students of color, meaning the topics and the faculty teaching them are often faced with groups of students whose backgrounds and perspectives may be decidedly different – even hostile – to multicultural pedagogy and curriculum. This edited collection brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars of color to critically examine what it is like to explore race in predominantly white classrooms. It delves into the challenges academics face while dealing with the wide range of responses from both White students and students of color, and provides a powerful overview of how teachers of color highlight the continued importance and existence of race and racism. Exploring Race in Predominately White Classrooms is an essential resource for any educator interested in exploring race within the context of today’s classrooms

Review:

"In a seemingly post-racial society, ignoring race and denying racism have been the sine qua non of whiteness. Yet the reality of racism continues to persist in subtle and not so subtle ways. Powerfully honest and gripping, the essays in Exploring Race in Predominantly White Classrooms offer a gift of candor and courage by daring to gaze boldly at whiteness. While these testimonies will be painfully familiar to some readers, for others they may be sufficiently disturbing to shatter presumptions of innocence and halt evasions of responsibility. This volume is an indispensable pedagogical tool that can help make social justice education more effective."―Barbara Applebaum, Professor of Philosophy of Education, Syracuse University

"George Yancy, Maria del Guadalupe Davidson, and the authors of this magnificent volume have revealed an existential philosophy of praxis that is both critically engaging and pedagogically transformative. It is a courageous book that can help to untangle the tragic and murderous history of race in the United States, and shed a different kind of light on human sociality, one that reveals how together we can create transformative knowledge through critical self-reflection. This book is destined to become a classic."―Peter McLaren, Professor of Urban Education, University of California, Los Angeles and Distinguished Fellow in Critical Studies, Chapman University
