In this online social science course, you will learn about race and racism in the United States. This course is ideal for anyone who is interested in racial and ethnic studies but has never taken a critical course in these topic areas. This course will equip you to be able to identify and define systemic and institutional racism; accept the unequal history of race and racism in the U.S. that has created racial hierarchies; recognize that anyone can be anti-racist; and much more.

By completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Talk about race and racism
  • Distinguish between talking about race/racism and participating in racist acts
  • Use contemporary intersectional terminology through a provided glossary
  • Share with others the true foundations of the United States's histories
  • Distinguish between being not racist and being anti-racist
  • Explain why phrases like “All Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Matter” are racist
