As early as 1948, W.E.B. DuBois taught a university course in African-American history and culture at The New School. Now, almost seventy years later, the New Black School continues the tradition by organizing Black Lives Matter 101, a series of “classes” examining Black social movements in the 21st century. Topics include the role of faith in advancing social movements, the relationship of the “new” civil rights movement to nascent social movements, the role of technology and new media in controlling and creating new narratives in justice movements, the global efforts to advance justice for Black people worldwide, and the critical need for more action in the realms of health and environmental justice. Each "class" features a panel of "visiting scholars," experts, activists and a recommended reading list. In keeping with the New School's academic tradition, participants should come prepared to engage, challenge ideas, and commit to individual action.
