Dr. Alex Gee hosts a discussion about the African American History Course started by Justified Anger. His guests are some of the team behind the course, including Harry Hawkins (Executive Vice President of Nehemiah/Justified Anger) and Dr. Karen Reece-Phiffer (Director of Program Research/Evaluation for Nehemiah/Justified Anger). One of the course participants, Chris Wood, also joins the discussion to share how attendees are transformed by the content and experience of the course.
Hear how the team approached the design and facilitation of the course program. The class aims to move past intellectual exercises and into emotional understanding and action. With an academic approach, the course balances engagement with the head and the heart.
As referenced in the podcast, here is a link to the Race to Equity Report statistics, as well as the Race to Equity website for more details.
