Taylor, Mildred D; Multicultural education; Social justice--Study and teaching (Elementary);
We need to learn the history of the civilizations that have given us the framework for all of what we teach and learn. We must learn more specifically about the Americas and the European oppression, slavery, the Civil War in the United States, and the American Dream with liberty and justice for all. Still, perhaps the most significant learning, our change of heart, happens just one person at a time. It happens by developing those relationships of mutual care and concern.
For us, the voices came from [author] Mildred D. Taylor and from Nina [a student]. For social justice to be served for every life, we must seek to understand and to give a voice to victims of prejudice, injustice, and oppression--particularly those among us--for they will be the source of our enlightenment.
