SW 130 Black Lives Matter: Building Racial Justice and Solidarity (Seated)
"This course empowered me with the tools to work through problems and scenarios concerning race in America in an educational, practical, active and relatable way. I have learned how to look at the challenging experience of Black people with ease because I know how and where to look for help and guidance. Overall, I believe SW 130 ignited a spirit of relationship-building that I was not too keen on just a few years ago. I am confident that on my journey in life, I will continue to pull from the materials in SW 130." — Nakkia, UB senior
