In High Schools, Race, and America’s Future, published by Harvard Education Press, Lawrence Blum, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education and a professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts - Boston, offers his account of his time teaching a rigorous high school course on race and racism. In the book, Blum, a moral philosopher whose work focuses on issues of race, reflects on the challenges and surprises encountered in teaching and on the paradoxes of his own role as a white college professor teaching in a multiracial high school classroom.
