Course Description


Racism is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of How to Fight Racism, along with the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.

This course will help you pursue racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework—the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice—that helps you consistently interrogate your own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This course is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.

Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he shows you how to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines.

When you finish this course, you will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive, practical ways.

By completing this course, you’ll gain:

  • Foundational knowledge about the ARC of Racial Justice
  • Insight into how Christian principles of love, justice, and the image of God serve as the ultimate solution to racism
  • Practical ways to take a stand for justice in your world
  • Confidence in your growing knowledge through personalized review sessions and unit assessments
