What you will learn:
In this session, we will discuss the importance of knowing how both historical and current accomplishments and innovations in the Black Community has made America and the world what it is today. Even in a time where some African Americans are reaching the highest levels of the organization chart, there are still systems of inequities that stem from a lack of knowledge of Black History and Black reality. This course will be an interactive and engaging opportunity to take a look at Black History from a perspective of knowing and valuing African American contributions made to society. After this course, your perspective may evolve on how you and your team interacts with, pays attention to, addresses the needs of, or even ask for the opinions of your African American co-workers before making decisions.
