General education courses in the liberal arts offer students the chance to engage with texts that have shaped the world we live in today. Yet many core programs rely on a seemingly fixed canon of authors from the western European tradition—neglecting the intellectual achievements of non-European peoples and obscuring historical realities that have always been multiracial and multicultural. Over the course of the week, teachers, students, activists, artists, and community members will explore ways we can widen the lens and amplify muted voices. What new stories can we share to help us all envision a future free of racial hierarchies?
