"The Consequences of 'The Talk': Confronting Racially Biased Policing in the Classroom"
African and African Diaspora Studies Department
This presentation meditates on the necessity of anti-racist curricula within the classroom. Jaden Janak will be sharing their experience as a Black Studies TA navigating deeply personal conversations about police violence with their students via Zoom. Whether in a Biology or Math classroom or an English or Black Studies one, anti-racist conversations within our classrooms are indeed a matter of life or death. It is imperative that all of us across the university, discipline, methodology, and rank, engage deeply with them.
