As millions across the U.S. mourn the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and other innocent people of color — all of whom lost their lives as a result of police violence — the conversation on racial injustice grows louder and stronger.

Education on race, diversity, and inclusion is essential for everyone, particularly non-Black allies.

For centuries, structural racism in the U.S. has led to vast inequities, racial prejudice, and acts of violence toward people of color. That's why education on race, diversity, and inclusion is essential for everyone, particularly non-Black allies, to better understand the injustices that African Americans have experienced over the last 400 years.

To help deliver a deeper understanding of these topics, colleges and other organizations across the country are offering free online courses and resources specializing in matters of race/racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
