About the Event

There’s more to Black Lives Matter than police brutality. The Thirteen Principles offer a framework for building a more just society, and young children are primed to learn about them. In this six-week course, you’ll learn about U.S. history and how our “peculiar institution” of slavery has reverberations that have echoed for the past 400 years; explore alternatives to the systems that uphold white supremacy; reflect on the roles of allies and accomplices; and, of course, learn about how to talk to your children or students about Black Lives Matter and what they can do to make the world a better place.

This course will take place at 5PM PST/ 8PM EST every Wednesday for 6 weeks on Zoom beginning on July 15th. Each class is 1 hour long with 30 minutes for Q&A. You will receive weekly readings and yes, there will be homework!

We offer both live classes and recorded along with a special discount for educators. Please see ticket tiers for the option that works best for you.* Recorded classes will be provided to live ticket holders.

*If you are an educator or would like to take the course but are experiencing financial hardship, please email rootedcourseworkonline@gmail.com and we will make arrangements for you.
