Central Texas residents are invited to participate in a four-week community class on “Race in America.” This exploration of contemporary race relations in America is based on University of Texas History Professor Leonard N. Moore’s class that has been taught at UT for the past 8 years (now called “Race in the Age of Trump”, formerly called “Race in the Age of Obama”).

By the end of the course, participants will have the tools to:

  • Engage in a fair-minded and intelligent conversation or debate on race
  • Remain resilient in the face of opinions and viewpoints you don’t agree with
  • Enhance awareness and understanding of the role of race in business, law, and policy
  • Develop an appreciation for different perspectives
