Title

#CharlestonSyllabus

Description

Chad Williams, chair of the Brandeis University African and Afro-American Studies Department, conceived a new hashtag, #CharlestonSyllabus, to crowdsource a list that provides information about the history of racial violence in the United States, and contextualizes the history of race relations in South Carolina and the country in general.

#CharlestonSyllabus is a list of readings that educators can use to broach conversations in the classroom about the horrendous events that unfolded in Charleston, South Carolina on the evening of June 17, 2015. These readings provide valuable information about the history of racial violence in this country and contextualize the history of race relations in South Carolina and the United States in general. They also offer insights on race, racial identities, global white supremacy and black resistance. All readings are arranged by date of publication. This list is not meant to be exhaustive–you will find omissions. Please check out the Charleston Syllabus book for additional reading
