The concept of intersectionality considers the interconnected nature or overlap of multiple categorizations such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic class, and physical ability. For Black students already experiencing inequalities, being “Black and . . .” (female, queer, or another marginalized identity) can lead to encounters that further devalue their identities or leave them feeling unseen.
Intersectionality in Health Education seeks to prompt meaningful reflection on the current status of health education and to ultimately result in more equitable practices for all students. It will help health educators identify their implicit biases, examine how intersectionality is affecting Black students, and build classrooms where all students are seen and valued.
Racism is a sickness that permeates every aspect of Black life. But if the events of the past few years have taught us anything, it is that America has a hard time talking about issues that create disparity and inequality for Black people. This inequality extends not just into education but also into physical education. Blacks are stereotyped as physically superior and intellectually deficient. They are marginalized in PE just as they are in other aspects of their lives. Through a series of case studies, Critical Race Studies in Physical Education offers deep insights into the issues that Black students face. The text, geared to undergraduate and graduate PETE students and in-service teachers, does the following: Provides culturally aware teaching strategies that affirm the worth of Black students; amplifies the crucial issues that negatively affect Black students; and addresses the litany of intentional and covert racist practices directed toward Black youth, thus broadening the book’s value beyond the sharing of teaching strategies.
