This week you will connect your reading of student organizing in social movements historically to your own efforts to engage in student organizing at UW Bothell. You are welcome to team up around shared interests, but the work you submit needs to be your own. There are two parts to this:
First, read and watch hooks and get to know the argument that she is making about education and power. Listen to the podcasts from CodeSwitch and the Hidden Brain and think about connections. Then, watch the films about HBCUs and Freedom Summer. Are there examples you can draw on for comparison to your current experience?
Second, identify one student club, group, or collective organizing interest on campus. Not sure where to start? UWB Student Engagement and Activities (Links to an external site.)might be a good place to look around. If you are unable to find examples from our campus that you can relate to, you can also think about broader national or international movements in which students have had a role. Then you can work your way back down to our campus to see where people might be interested in working on that issue. What connections can you draw to the materials from this week?
