Santander Universities in partnership with The Open University, have created Union Black: Britain's Black cultures and steps to anti-racism a free online education programme, presented by experts, designed to start conversations around Black cultures in the UK and explore anti-racism. The course explores Black cultures in Britain and provides learners with an understanding of Black British history, dispelling myths in order to inform, challenge and contribute to the anti-racism agenda.
Two courses are available:
- Introducing Union Black
This one-hour ‘introduction’ is designed to introduce learners to some of the concepts and learning experiences in the full ‘Union Black: Britain’s Black Cultures and steps to anti-racism’ course and help build confidence as a change agent for equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
- Union Black: Britain’s Black Cultures and steps to anti-racism
Union Black aims to provide learners with an understanding of the origins and experience of Black British history and culture, and a critical appreciation of the concepts of intersectionality and race as a social construct.
