An ambitious book about race and education in 21st century America, showing the connections between schools, institutional racism, and the media, and what young people of color and the rest of us can do to carve out space for another kind of public education.
One of America's most distinguished scholars of race shows us how public education needs to be seen in the light of the influence of "color-blind racism as a system of power." Drawing examples from schools, media, and the workplace, Collins gives us a book of social analysis that is also an energizing handbook for change.
‘’In Another Kind of Public Education, Patricia Hill Collins skillfully melds high theory with everyday practice. . . . This book is both a treat and a treasure.’’-Gloria Ladson-Billings, author of The Dreamkeepers: Successful Teachers of African American Children
‘’Collins argues that four dimensions of racial discrimination continue to characterize American society: structural, cultural, disciplinary and interpersonal, contending that symbolic victories such as the election of Obama and the success of black women like Oprah Winfrey and Condoleezza Rice are no substitute for substantive change. . . . The author's personal experiences as a black woman and as a teacher enliven the book. . . . An intellectually challenging monograph on race relations.’’-Publishers Weekly
Patricia Hill Collins is Distinguished Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland-College Park, and the author of several books, including Black Feminist Thought and Black Sexual Politics. She lives with her husband in Wheaton, Maryland.
