In 2015, veteran political organizer and NYU professor Frank Leon Roberts began teaching the nation's first Black Lives Matter course on a college campus. Based on the award-winning pedagogy of his original curriculum #BlackLivesMatterSyllabus, Roberts provides audiences with tools for engaging BLM in the context of today’s politically-charged climate. In this talk, Roberts not only argues that the Black Lives Matter movement makes the world a better place for all people, regardless of race, but also shares insights on how students, educators and college campuses can contribute to political resistance movements.
