As a historian of racial capitalism and policing, I believe that students learn best through teaching that models the feeling of discovery characterizing historical research. Critically interrogating primary sources offers students a sense of authorship over their ideas, while also revealing the historical contingencies of racial injustices. My objective as a university educator is therefore to encourage students to become critical stewards of their own learning process.
