Course Description

This course is offered to current University of Windsor students only. Register with your UWIN ID.

The murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in the U.S. as well as the brutal beating of Defonte Miller and death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet in Canada have reinvigorated the Black Lives Matter movement and have sparked new discussions about the prevalence of anti-Black racism (ABR) in Canada.

This three-hour online class will help you to build your foundational knowledge on race literacy and consciousness by discussing a glossary of terms related to ABR, unconscious bias and contemporary ABR topics such as Black Lives Matter and the N-Word.

This class is offered to current University of Windsor students only. If you are not a University of Windsor student and you are interested in participating in the full class, please visit The Fundamentals of Race and Anti-Black Racism.

Students will receive an e-certificate for their participation in the class.
