Liberation Literacies: At the Intersection of Language, Race, and Power
What if I told you that the way we use language every day has the power to uphold or disrupt social injustice? Privileging white mainstream English in schools not only under-prepares students for our multiethnic, multilingual, globalized society, but it also relies on the logics of coloniality and racism. Drawing on Dr. Lyiscott's scholar-activism, personal narratives, and her work engaging hip-hop, spoken word, and media in education, this talk will complicate the fallacy that 'standard English is the language of power' and discuss the capacity of Liberation Literacies Pedagogy to utilize language as a site of resistance.
