Introduction to Racial Justice
This course is designed to help students gain knowledge about race as it has been constructed in the United States and around the globe. The curriculum is designed to have students develop an awareness of their own racial socialization and skills for engaging in productive conversations about race, racism, and social justice. Discussions and readings will draw from a variety of the social sciences including history, psychology, political science and sociology. Works of fiction, non-fiction, primary sources, historical documents, current events, art, film, and other forms of media will be incorporated throughout the course to serve as talking points for classroom discourse, research, and presentation, to widen students’ cultural lens. The course will be open to juniors and seniors.
