Anti-Blackness, Anti-Racism, and Pedagogy

May 27, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm


In recent months, activists and scholars in the United States have taken to the streets, the workplace, and the classroom to decry anti-Black racism and call attention to the ongoing devaluation of the lives of People of Color, and the legal and extralegal violence against them. The events that have swept the nation and globe represent just the latest chapter in the history of racism and of anti-racist organizing, including freedom struggles—one that can be traced back hundreds of years. 

This panel discussion seeks to provide a broad introduction to the impact and relevance of these events at Pitt and to explore the meaning of Anti-Racist Pedagogy as a teaching paradigm. Panelists will focus on significant questions about this pedagogical approach and share their own experiences in applying, and continuing to grapple with, this important topic.
