Reimagining Blackness and Architecture

Mondays, January 24 – February 28, 3:00-4:15 pm

Location: Meets on Zoom, Register online or call 319-356-5220

Facilitator: Emily Edrington

Architecture structures our daily lives. It shapes our homes, streets, neighborhoods, cities and more. But who gets to create and occupy these spaces? In the United States, a long history of anti-Black racism has created spatial inequalities that are built into the physical environment and erased the stories of Black architects and communities. Reimagining Blackness and Architecture, a massive open online course (MOOC) created by the Museum of Modern Art and presented via Coursera.org, explores the relationship between architecture and Blackness as an identity and a lived experience. Join to absorb and discuss course materials together. A (free) Coursera.org account will be needed.
