Race and Social Justice in Art

CHAPTER 4: Curriculum: Doing Social Justice

The Blanton has a longstanding, ongoing commitment to activating its collections on behalf of anti-racist and social justice values. Our “Doing Social Justice” lesson plans, created in collaboration with colleagues at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Austin Independent School District (AISD), are among our most popular offerings for middle and high school classes. The content available HERE was developed through the partnership with ADL and AISD for a set of instructional posters. We hope that the images and related questions support families in talking about the important issues of racism and belonging.
