UWindsor launches Fundamentals of Race and Anti-Black Racism course for public

The University of Windsor has launched a new race and anti-Black racism course for the public – the Fundamentals of Race and Anti-Black Racism – through UWindsor’s Continuing Education office. The course will be discussion-based and offered virtually, and will cover issues such as race, anti-Black racism, and whiteness. The course takes 18 hours to complete, and those who finish it will earn a certificate. “I hope for the participants [of this course] to take away a foundational understanding of the construct of race and racism … and then build on that foundation to be able to recognize when they are experiencing or are the perpetrator of micro-aggressions,” said course teacher Kaitlyn Ellsworth.
