Social Justice for the Oppressed: Critical Educators and Intellectuals Speak Out by Pierre Wilbert Orelus (E-Book)

This book draws from interviews conducted with prominent social justice educators and activist intellectuals, such as Noam Chomsky, Gayatri Spivak, Stuart Hall, Henry Giroux, Antonia Darder, Molefi Asante, and Maxine Greene, to examine various forms of social inequities occurring in schools and society perpetrated by those in power. These educators and intellectuals use examples drawn from both personal and professional experiences and relevant literature to point out the manner in which multiple forms of oppression intersect, in both hidden and visible ways, to affect the lives of oppressed groups and disfranchised communities. This book seeks to shed light on various manifestations of social injustices aiming to inspire critical, radical thoughts for socio-political action leading to educational and social change.
