Abstract

In our article, we share five teaching strategies to address and confront racism, racial bias, and stereotypes. Echoing contemporary artists who provide excellent visual interventions against racism and racial violence, we offer artistic and visual intervention strategies designed for art classrooms and community settings. Our strategies include visual intervention, anti-racist gaze, counter-narrative and storytelling, cultural and ethnic identity celebration, and coalition building. We believe that these strategies advance racial dialogues in schools, providing students of color with opportunities and tools for their stories to be heard. Facing unprecedented violence and multi-layered racial problems in our society, our strategies grounded in the power of artistic intervention and activism will offer a valuable tool to engage students with the practice of anti-racism.
