Description

How should we in education approach the vexing question of race? The answers have never been easy to come by and at the beginning of the 21st century they are no less complex? Still, the Race and Pedagogy Initiative is committed to addressing this question. The Initiative is a collaboration of the University of Puget Sound and the South Sound community, which educates students and teachers at all levels to think critically about race and to act to eliminate racism. In bringing together years of experience as an educator, preacher, scholar, and community advocate, Dr. Gordon will promote his vision of comprehensive community development grounded in equality and justice for all.
