Racial Consciousness 101

Tuesday, October 1, 2019
7:00 pm
Armstrong Student Center, Harry T. Wilks Theater

Racial Consciousness 101 is a revived historical anti-racist education initiative.

  • In 1981, the Black Student Action Association (BSAA) co-sponsored panel discussions through first-year English writing classes in order to disrupt the anti-Black racial myths held by Miami University students.
  • In 2018, on the 50th anniversary of BSAA, a group of undergraduate and graduate students revived these panels as Racial Consciousness 101. This educational program had over 85 participating courses, and over 700 people attended one of the two panel events.

The co-sponsors of this event are BSAA (Black Student Action Association), EHS, English, and the CAWC.
