Looking for tools and materials to teach about race?

CCSRE provides a resource for educators and facilitators who want to develop students' or coworkers' racial literacy. RaceWorks includes: 1) a series of short videos with Stanford scholars from various disciplines that explores how people "do race" and ways to "undo racism" and 2) an accompanying digital toolkit with discussion questions and activities that complement the videos. Developed in collaboration with SPARQ, the goal was to create an open access, modular resource that educators, professionals, and facilitators can use to enhance their teaching and conversations about race.
