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

January 14, 2022
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.
