Any institution that does not give students the critical and theoretical frameworks to understand White supremacy in the United States is an active contributor in the proliferation of this hegemonic force. White supremacy is a system that produces violence educationally, socially, politically, environmentally, ontologically, and epistemologically. The study of Whiteness and White supremacy has been discounted in high school settings for various reasons. This project seeks to solve this critical issue within the field of secondary education through the implementation of a course that unpacks White supremacy while center Black history. This course will provide students with a historical framework for understanding Whiteness and White supremacy over a 400-year period. The main objective of this course is to allow students to conceptualize through the intense study of Black history in the United States, the manifestations of Whiteness and White supremacy from its inception and its present-day situatedness.
