George Yancy is Professor of Philosophy at Duquesne University. Maria del Guadalupe Davidson is Assistant Professor of Business Communication and Co-Director of the Center for Social Justice at the University of Oklahoma.


"In a seemingly post-racial society, ignoring race and denying racism have been the sine qua non of whiteness. Yet the reality of racism continues to persist in subtle and not so subtle ways. Powerfully honest and gripping, the essays in Exploring Race in Predominantly White Classrooms offer a gift of candor and courage by daring to gaze boldly at whiteness. While these testimonies will be painfully familiar to some readers, for others they may be sufficiently disturbing to shatter presumptions of innocence and halt evasions of responsibility. This volume is an indispensable pedagogical tool that can help make social justice education more effective."-Barbara Applebaum, Professor of Philosophy of Education, Syracuse University

"George Yancy, Maria del Guadalupe Davidson, and the authors of this magnificent volume have revealed an existential philosophy of praxis that is both critically engaging and pedagogically transformative. It is a courageous book that can help to untangle the tragic and murderous history of race in the United States, and shed a different kind of light on human sociality, one that reveals how together we can create transformative knowledge through critical self-reflection. This book is destined to become a classic."-Peter McLaren, Professor of Urban Education, University of California, Los Angeles and Distinguished Fellow in Critical Studies, Chapman University
