The Use of Social Media in Teaching Race
Adult Learning Volume 25, Number 3, ISSN 1045-1595
This article explores ways in which race pedagogy interrogates social media as a significant influence on racism and source for race understandings. Social media serves as a context in which to learn about, challenge, and address issues of race. We discuss how social media may be used to promote racial literacy and question and resist racism, using a YouTube post example, comment stream, and video responses. Our focus includes a discussion of intersectionality and highlights ways in which resisting racism may still involve sexism or other oppression.
