Description

Racism has been a characteristic of many cultures, ever since the first human societies millions of years ago. But where does racism come from? What is it about human nature that inclines some people to stereotype and vilify other races? This Australian-made, curriculum fit program explores these questions in a range of different ways - through the eyes of three key experts, through the presentation of various facts and figures about racism in Australia and around the world, and through a simple drama, set in an Australian secondary school, that illustrates how exclusion of people for baseless reasons impacts on all individuals concerned. Racism is a sensitive issue, and this program encourages students to explore, and maybe confront, a societal issue that has been around as long as we have. Chapters: 1. Introduction 2. What is Racism? 3. Why Does Racism Exist? 4. Racism in Australia - Aboriginal Australians 5. Racism in Australia - Migrants 6. Preventing Racism 7. Conclusion
