Cultural Competency and Research Positionality: Critical Race Theory


According to Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, "The critical race theory (CRT) movement is a collection of activists and scholars engaged in studying and transforming the relationship among race, racism, and power.  The movement consider many of the same issues that conventional civil rights and ethnic studies discourses take up but places them in a broader perspective that includes economics, history, setting, group and self-interest, and emotions and the unconscious."
