Teaching Civil Rights Through the Basic Tax Course

12 Pages Posted: 13 Jul 2014

Date Written: 2010


My teaching package includes the following courses: Corporate Tax, Critical Race Theory, Federal Income Tax, and Tax Policy. Whenever anyone finds out what I teach, they usually comment about what an odd combination that is, and I usually respond that it really isn’t so odd because my scholarship (at least since 1996) examines the racial implications of federal tax policy. The conversation then takes one of two turns: the other participant either changes the subject, or he or she asks me to tell them more. I am going to assume for the rest of this Essay that if you’re still reading, then you fall in the latter category.
