This scholarly talk focuses on anti-racism education research and practice within classroom pedagogy. The speaker will discuss the evolution of anti-racism practices, establish ways to incorporate anti-racist perspectives in the classroom using examples from music education, and discuss how these principles might be applied within classrooms in other disciplines. From community involvement to personal practices within the classroom, this session provides an opportunity to become more familiar with anti-racism and consider how these practices benefit a range of pedagogical experiences.

Facilitator: Amy Lewis, Ph. D candidate, Michigan State University
