As mentioned in Module 1, antiracism is also a pedagogy. When educators challenge racism with intentionality, they are contributing not only to resources and representation in their curriculum but also to their educator communities by modelling examples and by inviting others to do the same.

The image and source below is an example of this.

In the context of understanding white supremacy, realizing the depth of racial injustice and the emerging self-awareness of what it means to have accepted it and lived based on it has emotional consequences (Du Bois, 1940). As mentioned earlier, shifting our practice to UDL and equity frameworks is a reflective practice - not a checklist - and it is best done within communities of colleagues who are also committed to support growth and change.
