Critical Race Studies Across Disciplines: Resisting Racism through Scholactivism Kindle Edition
This book argues that critical race theory (CRT)—which originated within Legal Studies during the 1970s—has permeated multiple academic disciplines and informs the ethical commitments of scholars in diverse fields of study. Critical Race Studies Across Disciplines includes essays by scholars of African American studies from various disciplines, who directly and indirectly incorporate CRT through signaling a commitment to scholar-activism or scholactivism. Scholactivists hope to understand the roots of anti-Black racism and to actively oppose all forms of oppression. Drawing on CRT, the volume counters the colorblind rhetoric of those who dismiss the notion of systemic racism, discount racial inequities, and disregard racial justice advocates as malcontents fanning the flames of racial dissension. The contributors of this collection challenge racism centering the stories, perspectives, and counter-narratives of African American soldiers, teachers, students, writers, psychologists, and theologians who continually defy and resist oppression in myriad ways.
Critical Race Studies Across Disciplines further bolsters the academic and practical utility of critical race theory in understanding the real-world implications of systemic oppression throughout the world. Scholars and the public will be drawn to the compelling arguments for and evidence of CRT's essential role of 'scholactivism' in redressing racial inequities ingrained in every aspect of life in the U. S. and beyond. This book is a 'must read' and 'must do.'-- Tina M. Harris, Louisiana State University
Critical Race Studies Across Disciplines: Resisting Racism through Scholactivism is an invaluable text that advances a complex analysis of what drives the persistence of US racial injustice. It builds upon long-standing critical theories and real-lived accountsthat emerge from and inform the evolution of African American culture in its communal quest for social justice. Chism et al have love-crafted an anthology that merits becoming a landmark in the burgeoning field of critical race theory. What other normative accounts of history in various academic disciplines discount and disregard, this text lays bare for all to see and comprehend. In so doing, it counters and corrects the colorblind rhetoric, racial inequities, and racial dissension that make up the study of these yet to be united states of America.-- Stacey M. Floyd-Thomas, Vanderbilt University --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
