A Call for All Black Lives

Lance McCready asks: "How are curriculum studies scholars positioning ourselves in relation to the activist, "making space", work of Black queer youth? Are we drawing on it to rethink the forms, meaning and mobilization of curriculum and content in and beyond schools?" He argues that "curriculum as participation in families, neighborhoods, schools and grassroots activism has multiple possibilities", including the affirmation of all Black lives.

This is Taking too Long: Waiting on Settler Drives to Mutual Destruction
Eve Tuck issues this challenge: "educational research is not yet effective in establishing recommendations that will result in material outcomes which reduce antiblackness, dispossession of Indigenous peoples, or global warming. If the field cannot address the aspects of North American settler society which drive precarity, where do we really think this is all going? Frustration, which has been largely avoided in the field of educational research, may be the exact productive, generative, wise affective response required to make and inform needed change."
