White Passage and Black Pedagogy

Part of the Black Religion/Womanist Thought/Social Justice book series (BRWT)


In the midst of the Los Angeles debacle of 1992, footage was shown on national TV in which a white-looking 30-something man carrying a bag of “stuff” across the parking lot of a looted store is accosted by a black man who is about his same age. The white man is grinning. The black man is visibly upset. The irony is palpable. The black man swats the bag out of the white guy’s arms onto the ground. Solidarity in the struggle is not the same as partnership in the parking lot.
