MediaLibrary#5526The authors of The Handbook of Race and Adult Education participated in a panel discussion, “Race and Adult Education: Engaging A Dialogue on Racism" on February 22-23, 2012 at The College of New Rochelle.

The Handbook of Race and Adult Education is the first comprehensive work to engage in a dialogue specifically about race and racism and the effect these factors have on the marginalization or oppression of groups and individuals. 

This event was the second in a series of inaugural lectures celebrating the Inauguration of the College’s 13th president, Judith Huntington.

The authors are:
  • Dr. Vanessa Sheared, Dean of the College of Education, California State University, Sacramento, California.
  • Dr. Juanita Johnson-Bailey, Professor of Adult Education and Women’s Studies, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia.
  • Dr. Scipio A. J. Colin III, Associate Professor, Department of Adult and Continuing Education, National-Louis University, Chicago, Illinois.

The book offers adult education scholars, as well as those engaged in research and teaching about race, an opportunity to engage in a discourse about race and racism, including examinations of how these factors have been seen through multiple theoretical frameworks; how they have affected many lived experiences at work, home, and within educational settings; and how they have served to privilege some and not others.
