BlackLight is a reflection on the Black Experience, created for Black History Month.

BlackLight provides resources to help you become more familiar with the Black Experience in the United States. These activities cover a wide range — conversations amongst friends, watching videos, listening to radio and podcasts, listening to key voices on social media. In just an hour each day, or a day each week, you can engage in these activities to help you think about and reflect on your role and understanding of the Black Experience in America.

BlackLight is co-curated by Brian Nord, Lauren Biron, Renée Hložek, & Lucianne Walkowicz, but it would not be possible without the hard work of many others– in particular, Black scholars who work extensively on these topics both in the academy, and their lived experience. Please check out the Resources page for a complete list of references, as well as extended content to further your learning.
