Higher Education

When a WM speaks, students listen



I used this clip in the context of a conversation on race and gender in college classrooms.

The clip is useful on a number of levels, but I find it particularly useful to illustrate how some students tend to be more open to hearing a WM talk about race and gender in ways that they push back against the BW standing in front of class saying the very same things.

We spent quite a bit of time unpacking these issues and exploring questions that emerged as a result, and how these things help us understand issues of access and diversity in higher ed. Our work continues.
