James Baldwin’s ‘Everybody’s Protest Novel’: Educating our responses to racism

Educational Philosophy and Theory 46 (1):1-8 (2014)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The aim of this article is to establish—and explore—James Baldwin’s significance for educational theory. Through a close reading of ‘Everybody’s Protest Novel’, I show that Baldwin’s thinking is an important precursor to the work of Stanley Cavell and Cora Diamond, and is relevant to a number of problems that are educationally significant, in particular problems of race and racism.
