Reckoning with Race in America


This course was available in the past and may be presented again as part of the Open Enrollment curriculum.

We will use this time to examine the impacts and implications of race in America. We will leverage literary writings from authors and scholars who have examined race in this country to engage in conversations about our own understandings, beliefs, and attitudes about race. Our conversations will leverage historical context and how that impacts the world we live in today. We will discuss how race has impacted our society and shaped and formed the structure of our society for hundreds of years through the current day. We will also discuss how we interpret the impacts of race in our own lives both personally and professionally.


Online registration deadline: December 29 at 5 pm CT.
