#ScholarStrike sparks conversation on racism at TTU

Sep 9, 2020

Chris Smith deviated from his regular curriculum during in his 50-minute zoom class on Wednesday morning. This small class of six centers around art performance—it’s an independent study course—but on this day, he talked about the Black Panther party.

It was the second day of a strike among professors and students on campuses across the country. Smith took part in the strike—or in his case, “teach-in”—by dedicating each of his class times to talking about racism in America.
