SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State University plans to offer a course called “Black Minds Matter: A Focus on Black Boys and Men in Education,” inspired in part by the Black Lives Matter movement.
SDSU said in a statement that the weekly course will be open to the public for enrollment in October and have a racial justice focus that aligns with the mission of the joint doctoral program in education.
Craig J. DeLuz, a Sacramento-area school board member and gun rights advocate, said Tuesday that a public university should not be offering a course inspired by a movement accused of inciting violence. He is organizing a group to demand it be cancelled.
A number of U.S. colleges now offer courses about the Black Lives Matter movement.
