Conversations about race can be confusing, contentious, and frightening, particularly for White people. Even just asking questions about race can be ' scary, because we are afraid of what our questions might reveal about our ignorance or bias. Raising Race Questions invites teachers to use inquiry as a way to develop sustained engagement with challenging racial questions and to do so in a community so that they learn how common their questions actually are. It lays out both a process for developing questions that lead lo growth and change, as well as a vision for where engagement with race questions might lead. Race questions are not meant to lead us into a quagmire of guilt, discomfort, or isolation. Sustained race inquiry is meant to lead to antiracist classrooms, positive racial identities, and a restoration of the wholeness of spirit and community that racism undermines. Book jacket.
