In the Camp of Angels of Freedom: What Does It Mean to Be Educated? (Paperback)
An autodidact explores issues of education itself through essays and personal portraits of the key minds who influenced herWhat does it mean to be educated? Through her evocative paintings and narrative, author Arlene Goldbard has portrayed eleven people whose work most influenced her--what she calls a camp of angels. She sees each as a brave messenger of love and freedom for a society that badly needs "uncolonized minds." Goldbard describes how the learning from each changed the course of her life in essays that offer generative moments of a life in art and social change. She also reveals ways a dominant society tried to put a first-generation American from a socially marginal family in her place--and failed. Readers will learn about the author's own self education, issues of formal higher education and its discontents, and the damage done by a society that prizes profits over people. Goldbard asks readers to consider the impact of credentialism on U.S. society and what we can do to set it right.
