Charlottesville Syllabus: Collective Racial Violence

The Charlottesville Syllabus is a resource created by the University of Virginia's Graduate Student Coalition for Liberation. Also includes materials from Professor Walter D. Greason's Monmouth University course on collective racial violence


Professor Walter D. Greason taught his course on Collective Racial Violence only once because it quickly became apparent that the material was too traumatic for students to absorb all at once. He has since used these materials in smaller numbers in other courses. The content of the materials (often video) is sometimes graphic, so viewers should be aware that they may find them disturbing. The items presented here are derived from Professor Greason's Storify post collecting them for academic use.

Race Riots

The Second Klan


The New Deal and Post-war Era
