Duquesne Philosophy Professor Co-edits Book of Reflections by Scholars of Color
Dr. George Yancy, professor of philosophy at Duquesne University, co-edited the book Exploring Race in Predominantly White Classrooms: Scholars of Color Reflect.
As well as undertaking the editing role, Yancy is among the scholars featured in the book who address the challenges facing professors of color who teach courses on race at universities and the classrooms with predominately white students.
One reviewer noted the book published by Routledge offered "the gift of candor and courage" and "an indispensable pedagogical tool" in looking at the experiences of scholars and their students.
