Price: $150.00

Instructor: Dr. Nancy Dome

Credits: 1 | Schedule: 4 weeks

Who Should Take This Course

Anyone wanting to understand racism as a systemic issue will find this course invaluable. We are generally much more comfortable addressing racism as individual acts of prejudice, coupled with the power to impose this prejudice upon someone else. It can be more difficult to understand how these beliefs are sustained and reinforced in the systems around us.

What You Will Learn

You will begin with a basic introduction to Critical Race Theory and then examine how you see these systemic inequities playing out in history and in our contemporary moment. An examination of your personal beliefs and actions will help you understand your role in either challenging or perpetuating these systems. Finally, you will explore and practice strategies and approaches that combat the common pitfalls to addressing systems of racial inequality.
