Racial Justice & Voice

Instructor Name: 
Carmen Denison
Course Description: 

This course combines critical race theory, the history of the Black Civil Rights Movement, and critical service-learning methodology to develop a symposium plan for Campus Compact of Oregon's annual programming honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. PSU Students will design a teach-in style event that centers the voices and needs of partner campus representatives, community interest groups and advocates, and student activists representing Portland's Black community; thematically this project seeks to connect the historical to the contemporary, and theĀ regional to the national, to develop a new vision of Campus Compact's MLK Day programming.
