Anti-Racism is a three-course specialization designed to educate individuals on race and racism, particularly in the context of the United States. The program is ideal for those interested in becoming anti-racist advocates or integrating anti-racist practices into their daily lives.

The first course, Anti-Racism I, provides an introduction to critical race theory and addresses the basics of race and racism in the United States. Building on this foundation, Anti-Racism II delves into historical and linguistic constructions of race and racism, as well as the theory of intersectionality. The course encourages learners to apply their knowledge to diverse cultural contexts and engage in interview projects to enhance conversational nuance around race and racism.

In Anti-Racism III, participants are challenged to put theory into practice by creating a plan for practicing anti-racism and developing a community outreach project. Throughout the specialization, learners will gain the necessary skills to guide conversations about race, describe historical and linguistic constructions of race and racism, define intersectionality, and engage in anti-racist practices while designing community outreach projects.
