Course Introduction

Racial inequality continues to plague our society. As evidenced time and again, the systemic mistreatment of Black people appears to go unnoticed until an event occurs rendering society incapable of turning a blind eye. For a host of reasons, unrest explodes, protestors take to the streets, and a sense of discomfort prevails but only for so long. Eventually, quiet (at least for the majority) returns. As this subtle drumbeat continues, it is hard not to wonder if any progress has been made. Was the protesting and civil unrest worth it? Do the majority win again by simply waiting out the clock? These questions charge us to push forward and keep fighting with our hearts and minds. We do this by continuing to talk, processing, and dedicating ourselves to living as antiracists. This book study will provide a safe space where structured conversations around the topic of systemic racism can occur. Using Ibram Kendi’s text, How to be an Antiracist, we will process where we stand as individuals based on our lived experiences, identify areas in which we need to grow, and ultimately become better equipped to combat the ills of racism around us.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • identify what it means to be an antiracist,
  • articulate ways to grow toward being more of an antiracist,
  • better understand how to engage others in a walk of antiracism, and
  • feel more secure in addressing racist behaviors around us.
