The Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights is happy to announce the Spring 2021 Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary series. This weekly lecture series via Zoom will again welcome 12 distinguished scholars, thought leaders, and public intellectuals to guide our community through topics necessary to an understanding of systemic racism and racial justice. Series begins Friday, February 12.
Each week, a guest expert will present opening remarks that dissect a "Word of the Week." Included among the "words" will be broad concepts (e.g., "Implicit Bias,") as well as specific topics (e.g., "Ferguson," "Curricular Race Gap," "The Black Lives Matter Syllabus"). Following the main presentation, the guest expert will respond to student questions and offer "Three Musts"—must-read, must-watch, or must listen—on the Word of the Week, or on anti-racism more generally.
The entire series will be offered via Zoom, and is open to the Notre Dame community—students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Registration is required using a valid Notre Dame or alumni email address.
