Black Films Matter: The African-American Experience *Online*
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday October 6, 2020
Class is at capacity and is not registering new students at this time.
Series: Every other Tuesday, July 21- October 6.
This course uses documentaries, Ted Talks, and other videos that can help white people get a sense of what it means to be black in white America. This will be a six-session class stretching over twelve weeks, occurring every other week beginning on Tuesday, July 22.
If you sign up for the course, you will receive an email on July 5 with links to sites where you can view the videos for the first two weeks. Two weeks after that, on July 19, you will receive another email with the links for the next two weeks, as well as an invitation to a Zoom class on Tuesday, July 21.
In other words, we will have class every other week, during which we will discuss the videos from the previous two weeks of viewing. This pattern will continue throughout the twelve weeks.
Although this course is an offshoot of Bill Taylor’s series on White Privilege and its Consequences for Being Black in White America, new students are welcome. This class will take place online via Zoom and will require an internet connection to attend. Please email [email protected] to register, or for questions about how to access our virtual classes.
