Considering the historic contexts from Freire, Chavez, and Taking Back the Schools, what are some of the racist or classist assumptions embedded in our society? Think about the underlying assumptions Chavez and the documentary are fighting against. Think back to the schema and the critical questions posed in “The Man and the Lion.”
- “The Man and the Lion,” is a fable by Aesop. Here’s a version that goes like this:
A MAN and a Lion traveled together through the forest. They soon began to boast of their respective superiority to each other in strength and prowess. As they were disputing, they passed a statue carved in stone, which represented “a Lion strangled by a Man.” The traveler pointed to it and said: “See there! How strong we are, and how we prevail over even the king of beasts.” The Lion replied: “This statue was made by one of you men. If we Lions knew how to erect statues, you would see the Man placed under the paw of the Lion.”
The moral: One story is good, till another is told.
