Reframing the Music Classroom: Incorporating Anti-Racist Practices and BIPOC Voices
As students, scholars, and teachers who we cite in our research and who we teach in our classrooms has the power to make and remake our fields, centering certain forms of knowledge and ways of being, and disciplining and silencing others. This practical resource guide aims to center the voices of scholars and musicians who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) in our research and pedagogy. Students can explore these resources to learn about BIPOC scholars, musicians, and critical practitioners that have been underrepresented in academic music programs. Faculty can find pedagogical resources to help create anti-racist music classrooms. Please explore, cite, and recommend additions!
