about this item
In Histories of Social Studies and Race: 1865-2000, researchers investigate the interplay of race and the emerging social studies field from the time of the Emancipation of enslaved peoples in the second half of the nineteenth century to the multicultural and Afrocentric education initiatives of the late-twentieth century. The chapters incorporate viewpoints from various regions and local communities, as well as different ideas and ideals regarding teaching about race and Black history. This volume makes a case for considering the goals of such efforts - whether for individual development or social justice - and views the teaching of social studies education through the lens of race.
