About this book

This book focuses on the near total attrition of African American students from school music programmes and the travesty of democratic education that it symbolizes. Gustafson shows how understanding this history makes a space for change without resorting to the simplistic conclusion that the schools and teachers are racist.

RUTH GUSTAFSON is Assistant Professor of Education at University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.

Reviews

'This book deals with music education, but I think its intent, and the intellectual trajectory it traces, go far beyond the realm of music, and shows how schooling has become 'raced' in a way so pervasive, yet so invisible, that we have to look deeply to see this tendency as anything but natural and inevitable...Gustafson's work has the potential to reach beyond the area of music education to speak to a large variety of issues and problems facing educators today." - Theodora Lightfoot, Professor of Bilingual Education, University of Illinois at Chicago

"Race and Curriculum: Music in Childhood Education is a wonderful, groundbreaking book. By addressing the long-overlooked topic of race in music education and by taking a broad interdisciplinary approach to her analysis, Gustafson points historical research in music education in new and important directions." - Julia Eklund Koza, Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the School of Music, University of Wisconsin-Madison
