First Year Seminar students in the Anthropology course “Race, Racialization, and Blackness: A Multidimensional Approach,” visited the International Civil Rights Center and Museum and the Beloved Community Center, both in Greensboro, NC (March 24, 2018). The students learned how race, class, gender, and other factors played out in a civil rights struggle much broader and deeper than usually depicted. They also met Civil Rights leaders from the Woolworth sit-ins and subsequent struggles for voting rights, access to public institutions, good schooling, economic justice, and peace, as well as younger generations working on immigration reform, police violence, Black Lives matter, labor organizing, and community wellness and safety.
