This audited course explores the importance of free will and agency among Black individuals. Taught by Black resistance expert Dr. Sharde M. Davis, the course offers a brief refresher on major moments in Black history before diving into how one’s racial identity is formed in social settings and even how children learn about racism.

It further examines structural barriers the Black community still faces, and analyzes how racial tension and Black resistance show up in current forms of art and culture. Its syllabus is broken into three main sections: “What is anti-Black racism?”, “Racial socialization” and “Resistance, healing and resilience.”
