Via Zoom

The Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights presents Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary, a weekly lecture series and one-credit course presenting preeminent scholars, thought leaders, and public intellectuals to guide our community through topics necessary to a deeper understanding of systemic racism and racial justice.
In each class period, a guest expert will present opening remarks that dissect a "Word of the Week." Included among the "words" will be broad concepts (e.g., "allyship") as well as specific topics (e.g., "voting rights," "COVID," "Tulsa"). Following the main presentation, the guest expert will respond to student questions and offer "Three Musts" -- must-read, must-watch, or must listen -- on the Word of the Week, or on anti-racism more generally.
The entire course will be offered via zoom for all participants. In addition to attending the weekly lectures, students will also participate in three small-group sessions and write one brief reflection paper.
