7 In the Shadow of Violence: Enacting Hope, Healing, and Futurity during the Attacks on CRT Journal Article uri icon



  • Abstract: This article uses Critical Race Theory (CRT) to examine how recent calls to ban CRT have impacted the personal and professional lives of Faculty of Color in Colorado. In particular, we examine the socio-emotional and mental health ramifications of the ban, and how; Faculty of Color are leveraging culturally situated and historically anchored healing practices to transformatively resist epistemic violence and spirit murder in Colorado. In-depth interviews with seven Faculty of Color in Colorado reveal two crucial insights: (1) the personal and professional; consequences of the ban and (2) strategies to navigate and cope with the racist backlash from the ban.
