The legacies of racial formation are everywhere in our society, and our common understanding of race and ethnicity is reinforced through what we are exposed to through news media outlets, social media, culture, and the institutions around us.
An important goal for this class is to make connections between past and present, especially through writing.For this assignment you will select a current(ish) event/thing that is relevant to our course themes of race and racial formation we have already covered and write a 1-2 page reflection about it. Your reflection should briefly (and I mean *briefly*) summarize the thing you are writing about, but most importantly, explain how it connects to our class content and then add your thoughts and/or reactions to it.
Examples can include (but are not limited to) films, TV shows, art, music, sports, news/headlines, social media trends, memes, podcasts, etc. You will submit your Current Event Reflections here by Sunday, February 19th at midnight.
