In this interview, Professor Gloria Ladson-Billings analyzes the concepts of 'critical race theory' and 'culturally relevant pedagogy', emphasizes the importance of these concepts in the process of overcoming conservative models of multicultural education, and discusses the challenges for those working in the field of curriculum and teacher education, especially when they deal with the issue of race. Finally, she comments on her knowledge of the Brazilian educational reality and argues that Brazil should participate in a movement for the creation of a global critical race consciousness.
