As we seek to embrace anti-racism in the classroom, it is important to be familiar with past traumas that have been inflicted on people of color by members of the education and helping professions. “A Violent History of Benevolence: Interlocking Oppression in the Moral Economies of Social Working” is a book written by two Canadian scholars that chronicles the systematic racism used in the education and social work professions and the oppression particularly of Indigenous people and African Americans. This is important information not only for social workers but for all of us in higher education.
