I was honored when the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) contacted me to contribute to their winter magazine edition of The Language Educator. The winter edition has a Focus Topic dedicated to antiracism. My co-author, Dr. Cécile Accilien and I were invited to author the introductory article. I also worked with Dr. Cassandra Glynn and Tamari Jenkins to co-author a second essay on Black Representation in World Languages.
ACTFL Editor’s Note:
In this issue, we present articles on the Focus Topic “Antiracism in the World Language Classroom.” The submissions for this issue were blind reviewed by two education experts, in addition to staff from The Language Educator and ACTFL. We thank Krishauna Hines-Gaither, Vice President for Equity, Diversity and Justice at Mount Saint Mary’s University-Los Angeles, CA, and Cécile Accilien, chair of the Interdisciplinary Studies Department and Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies at Kennesaw State University, GA, for writing an introduction to this important topic.
