This course will focus on the history and systemic nature of anti-Black racism in the U.S. We will use readings, podcast interviews, and group discussions to explore the effects of racial trauma, and the compounding impact of belonging to multiple marginalized groups, including (but not limited to) gender, social class, and sexuality, and how these intersections intersect to increase susceptibility to experiences of racial trauma.
