Current events have brought race and race relations to the forefront of our social and political dialogues but the taboos around talking about race leave many of us unprepared to engage with these topics in an informed manner. The aim of this course is to be better prepared to engage in productive and meaningful conversations about race and racism. This will require a willingness to be uncomfortable, even disturbed, as we challenge our deeply held beliefs and systems of thought but we will be rewarded by learning to create inviting spaces to engage in conversations about race by emphasizing respect, humility, and forgiveness. The ultimate goal of this course is to enable us to recognize systems of inequalities and foster productive dialogue in order to change them.
