EDUC 133. Black Childhoods, Intersectionality and Education


(Cross-listed as BLST 133 )
This seminar examines the lives of Black children in U.S. schools. A sociohistorical and political perspective is taken to explore how Black childhoods, or the 'impossibility' thereof, has been conceived, resisted, and (re)imagined in public discourse, community organizations, social service agencies, and PreK-5 schools and classrooms. Intersectionality theory will be a prominent lens through which students interrogate the myriad ways race, class, and gender have served to marginalize Black children, particularly Black boys. The goal is to consider how schools can realize the promise and potential of a Black childhood.
