This chapter is the product of a number of discussions we have had about our identities and experiences of teaching anti-oppressive practice to social work students over 20 years. We share a common interest in using critical lenses to explore issues of inequalities and social justice which affect the profession but these are, understandably, framed differently given the contrast in our biographies, in terms of race, gender, religion and class. The first author is a black, British woman of Caribbean descent who has taught English social work students on the subject of anti-racist practice. The second author grew up in Northern Ireland, born into a Protestant, working class unionist family, becoming a social worker, then later social work educator (Campbell, 2013c).
