VIEW PROJECT


Students in Professor Robin Kelley's spring 2005 undergraduate course, Black Movements in the U.S., have developed the content of a collaborative website about key social justice movements in the United States. The Social Justice Movements wiki provides students the opportunity to create a website exploring the broader political visions of organizations representing labor, civil rights, black liberation, reparations, socialism/communism, feminism, welfare rights, youth/Hip Hop activism, education, peace, environmental justice, and anti-globalization and their impact on local communities. As Professor Kelley continues to teach this course in future semesters, new groups of students will add to the site, making it a valuable tool for social justice research.
