Teach-In On Race Teach-In On Race

In a nation beset by inequality, racism, a pandemic, and a variety of other challenges, how do we become better citizens? How do we generate actions to address race relations—not just at Emerson, but in this country and around the world? Join us as we explore ways to combine leadership, critical thinking, culture, and activism, and share ideas about using courage and knowledge to change the world.

The 2021 Fall Teach-In on Race will be a virtual two-day event October 28–29. The theme of this year's Teach-In on Race is "Creating Community." It will feature Drawing Social Justice-How Your Art Can Help Change the World, a keynote address by Tak Toyoshima, creator of the comic strip Secret Asian Man.

Sponsored by Academic Affairs and the President's Office in coordination with the Social Justice Center. Co-sponsors include the Emerson Prison Initiative, and the Elma Lewis Center.
