A Resource for Educators: Introduction to Critical Race Theory Course from Dr. Adrienne Keene

Dr. Adrienne Keene is the writer behind the blog Native Appropriations, and is also an Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies at Brown University. She has released a publicly accessible online course entitled “Introduction to Critical Race Theory“.

Excerpted from the course website:

“…After I posted my syllabus for this course on my academia.edu, there was a lot of excitement and interest around creating a space for folks to read through the texts together, so this site is meant to facilitate that process.

This course is a labor of love, and comes out of my experiences co-teaching Critical Race Theory in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education with Drs Kimberly Troung and Daren Graves, as well as support, insight, and beautiful assignment ideas from Dr. Leigh Patel. I am indebted to the hundreds of CRT scholars who have come before me and continue to do this work, and the dozens of students who have learned with me in the various iterations of this course. I’m by no means an expert, and am very much still learning right along with all of you this semester.”

A great resource for teachers and learners seeking more engagement with Critical Race Theory. Click on the link in Dr. Keene’s Tweet below to visit the syllabus:

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
