Overcoming Racism - A Radical Approach
Is racial conflict inevitable in a multi-racial society?
Or is it the product of social and economic conditions
past and present that can be understood and changed?
This two-part class will utilize works by writers of color,
feminists and radicals to explore these questions and
the vanguard role of people of color in social justice
movements, including the challenges and rewards of
organizing across color lines.
Authors whose works will be used in the class include those pictured above, from top:
Oliver C. Cox - Caste, Class and Race; Christina López -Estamos en la Lucha:
Immigrant Women Light the Fires of Resistance; W.E.B. DuBois - Black Reconstruction
in America, 1860-1880; Merle Woo - Stonewall Was a RiotNow We Need a Revolution,
and Yellow Woman Speaks
