‘This is America: Racism and Popular Culture’
Our beloved member, Ayanna Gaines, will be teaching a 4-week long class called “This is America: Racism and Popular Culture.” This class will examine racism through the lens of 20th and 21st century popular culture, looking at such artifacts as television shows, books, fashion, social media, and music videos.
This class will be held on Saturdays from 3-5pm starting March 12th via Zoom. Feel free to join any class session that fits your schedule, or take all four! This is exclusively for the members and friends of Chalice
