Black Lives Matter: Historical Legacies and Global Perspectives


Group Projects by UoC and UNM Students

To foster a transatlantic dialogue the students were asked to work on group projects which would expand on a topic from the course. Having been given free rein on the format, the students created a wide range of results which we are excited to present.
