Critical Race Theory Session 1
Thursday, October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$35
Session 1 of the Needham Community Education course, What is Critical Race Theory Anyway, and Why are So Many People Suddenly Talking about It?
co-sponsored by LWV-Needham and other organizations.
In this four-session course, we will explore the popular impact of the work of a few of the founding scholars of Critical Race Theory such as Derrick Bell, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Gloria Ladson-Billings. We will engage in a case study of an earlier media controversy. Finally, we will examine the ongoing tension between the concepts of race consciousness and color blindness, and how these concepts illuminate or hinder the ongoing American dialogue about race.
