Antiracist Pedagogy

“ ‘Racist policy’ says exactly what the problem is and where the problem is. ‘Institutional racism’ and ‘structural racism’ and ‘systemic racism’ are redundant. Racism itself is institutional, structural, and systemic,” wrote Ibram X. Kendi in “How to Be an Antiracist.”

Join Jenny Frederick, Executive Director of the Poorvu Center, and Julie McGurk, Director of Faculty Teaching Initiatives, for an open faculty forum discussion about antiracist pedagogy.
