Deadline Tomorrow: Global Movements for Racial Justice

submitted by

Final call! Seats are almost filled and the deadline is tomorrow.

The deadline has been extended for the summer Minneapolis-based course, “Anti-Apartheid and Black Lives Matter: Global Movements for Racial Justice.” Apply by Friday, April 2nd to enroll in this course that will satisfy your Augsburg Experience requirement.

In this two-week course, students will critically analyze the global racial unrest movements of the Southern Africa Anti-Apartheid system, and the racially motivated murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This experience will introduce students to the understanding of how these movements became historical events and impacted policy and the visibilities on racial inequities that impact the Pan-Afrikan diaspora and all BIPOC communities. Hear from activists and experts in Minnesota, as well as those from South Africa and Namibia.

We will be in person in Minneapolis, and will visit sites of historic and cultural importance in Minnesota, such as the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post, the Duluth Lynching Site to visit the Clayton-Jackson-McGhie Memorial, and George Floyd Memorial Square.

Dates are May 17 to May 28.
