People of Color in Predominantly White Institutions


Date of this Version



This interactive workshop utilizes Critical Pedagogy, Image Theater, and Forum Theater in the instruction of race, human, and gender relations. It borrows from Paulo Freire and Augusto Boal’s concept of Humanizing Education. Praxis, the dialectical relationship between thought and practice, becomes the vehicle for establishing a problem solving process that leads to “Permanent Relationships.” Participants are encouraged to discover the missing gaps of human relations by overcoming the gap between the science of “knowing” and the art of “doing.” This workshop is designed for educators and community specialists who are willing to both give and receive new information about diversity through the interactive learning process.
