Each Day is a New Labor: What can Black Campus Life Teach Us About Pedagogy?
The Critical Race Theorist, Patricia J. Williams closes an essay in her The Alchemy of Race and Rights by saying, “Nothing is simple. Each day is a new labor.” Creating an inclusive, affirming classroom is neither simple nor a destination—it is a process that requires labor. Drawing from Critical Race Thought, his book Black Campus Life: The Worlds Black Students Make at a Historically White Institution, and his experience studying race in higher education across the country, Dr. Antar Tichavakunda will discuss the complexity of race in higher education and offer different practices and questions that we might wrestle with in our labor to create more inclusive sites of learning.
