Below is a FAQ answering the most common questions asked.
What is “Black Minds Matter” (BMM): A Focus on Black Boys and Men in Education”?
- The first Black Minds Matter, a weekly series addressing the experiences and realities of black males in education, took place last fall. Drawing parallels between the Black Lives Matter movement and the ways black minds are engaged in the classroom, BMM encourages discussion of issues facing black male students and offers research-based strategies for improving their success. This ten-part series replay is an opportunity to extend what was learned during the original series to a broader group of participants.
Is this the same course as what was offered last fall?
- Yes. And no. Sessions are based on pre-recorded sessions from the first Black Minds series from Fall of 2017. Expanded to ten sessions, the content you will encounter during the replay has been taken directly from last year’s live course. Each session will have supplemental activities and discussion questions.
When is it offered?
- Every Tuesday, starting October 16 through December 11 from 11:30am – 2:00pm in OAB 126.
- Exception: The first week of November, we will be holding BMM on Monday, November 5. Same time, same place.

I didn’t attend the first session or I missed a session. Can I still participate?
- Yes. While the course builds on ideas and concepts introduced throughout the series, each individual session stands on its own. Please see the attached series flyer to see which topics Black Minds Matter will be discussing and when.
Where can I obtain the books and readings.
- We will provide all participants with everything they need to take part in the sessions and subsequent discussions.
