Course Information:

Let’s Talk About Race for Youth is a six-week course designed in response to a need for youth (grades 9-12) to raise their awareness on race, racism, anti-racism and racial justice.

Currently, there are many conversations happening about race (especially on social media) and many youth feel limited by a lack of tools to critically think and talk about what they are seeing, hearing, and living. This course will raise students’ racial awareness and give students important language and knowledge on select race topics as well as skills and strategies.

Students will be guided by the overarching question: What stories have you been told and what stories will you tell? Drawing from Lee Anne Bell’s (2010) Storytelling Project Model, this class uses the framework of stock stories, concealed stories, resistance stories, and emerging/transforming stories to examine and dialogue on race and work to build racially just spaces in our communities.
