Welcoming Dialogue on Black/African American Bias- Innovation Quarter
Ever wondered where to start with social justice issues? Have you wanted to become involved, but worry about using the wrong language? Join a group of like-minded voyagers as you engage in the Starbucks To Be Welcoming learning series.
Building on the race course, this To Be Welcoming course focuses on bias and the experiences of African Americans in the United States. Here, we explore how racism and biases affect the economic, social, and cultural experiences of peoples of African descent in the United States. We begin with key terms like Black or diaspora, followed by a video module featuring faculty experts answering commonly asked questions. Next, we provide context by exploring the ways Blackness is used in media, different social contexts, and in policing. We conclude with points for starting your own discussions on Black/African American bias and considering appropriate responses.
