Resources on “Precious Knowledge” and Ethnic Studies

This list of resources emerged through the course I developed and teach at Raritan Valley Community College, “Race in American Literature and Popular Culture.” I show the documentary Precious Knowledge, which focuses on Arizona’s ban on Ethnic Studies in K-12 including the ban on Tucson’s Mexican American Studies Program. The following resources, in conjunction with Paulo Freire’s The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, provide additional context.
