hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! wanted to
share some things i've been intrigued and inspired by
- this came first:
http://www.radioopensource.org/race-and-class-the-artists-take/

which led me to this:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3044865/site/newsweek/
(scroll down to "white in america"

and this artist: http://www.damaliayo.com/

i understand this can be a tougher "theme" to navigate
for some but it is extremely important for us to
consider. i'm lucky to teach in a racially diverse
high school and am looking forward to engaging my
students directly with these resources. am thinking
of a composition that includes painted colors, text,
and collage focused on personal feelings/experiences
relating to race and skin color. anyone up for
discussion?
