Abstract

This paper looks specifically at Afro-Caribbean art and culture and explores White and Afro-Caribbean experiences and the impact of Whiteness on the ways that knowledge and practice of the arts in museums have been considered, interpreted, and characterized. Written by co-authors offering an Afro-Caribbean and White perspective, this paper offers various examples from our experiences as art museum educators of the ways Whiteness impacts our work.

Keywords: Whiteness, Caribbean, museum education, colonialism, antiracism, White supremacy
