Race and Racism in Fantasy and Fairy Tales

By Jamie Kassler, Jodi LaMarrco, Jeremy Trier and Coleen Smalls

     For our group project we examined views on race and racism that appear in ways we teach and entertain children. Because racism is not inherited but learned, in one form or another, for our presentation we explored into where racist thoughts or labels may be viewed by childern. The critical and/or constructive analysis we completed came under the catogories of:

Nursery Rhymes, Folk Tales, & Fairy Tales
Children's Literature
Disney Movies
The Lord of the Rings
