TOPIC DESCRIPTION: A commitment to contributing to positive change in the national conversation about race is a clear goal for BU. The Day of Collective Engagement in June 2020, the appointment of Professor Ibram X. Kendi, and the opening of the Center for Anti-Racist Research are all part of getting that conversation started within the University.
What does this commitment look like in our classrooms? Join us to hear how instructors build an anti-racist curriculum within their classes.
