Teaching Resources for Social Justice

Why Self-Educate?

Alternative knowledge claims in and of themselves are rarely threatening to conventional knowledge. Such claims are routinely ignored, discredited, or simply absorbed and marginalized in existing paradigms. Much more threatening is the  challenge  that  alternative epistemologies  offer  to  the  basic  process  used  by the  powerful  to  legitimate  knowledge  claims  that  in  turn  justify  their  right  to rule.

-From Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment by Patricia Hill Collins

Engaging in intersectional social justice education requires that all of us, regardless of our identity and social location, strive to better understand our own histories and the struggles of those in community with us.  These resources are a starting point to help us employ other ways of knowing our world.
