Social Justice in Education Award Lecture

Daniel Gilbert Solorzano (University of California - Los Angeles)

The Role of Critical Race Theory in the Struggle for Social Justice

Daniel Gilbert Solorzano, 2012 recipient of the Social Justice in Education Award, traced the genealogy of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Education as a personal and collective journey toward social justice.  Starting with his early introduction to the fields of Race and Ethnic Studies and Freirean Pedagogy, continuing with the CRT works of Derrick Bell, Richard Delgado, Kimberly Crenshaw and Mari Matsuda, Solorzano spoke of their influence on him personally and on his contributions to the development of Critical Race Theory in Education.  Solorzano then addressed important new directions in CRT generally and education in particular.

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the 40th anniversary of the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the 30th anniversary of the Lau v. Nichols decision, the Social Justice Action Committee launches a new award—the Social Justice in Education Award—and invites nominations of individuals who have advanced social justice through education research. The recipient of the award should exemplify the goal of linking education research to social justice.
