#CharlestonSyllabus is a crowdsourced list of reading recommendations relating to the history of racial violence in the United States. It was created in response to the race-motivated violence in Charleston, South Carolina on the evening of June 17, 2015, when Dylann Roof opened fire during a Bible study session at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, killing 9 people.
#FergusonSyllabus is a crowdsourced syllabus about race, African American history, civil rights, and policing. Dr. Marcia Chatelain, assistant professor of history at Georgetown University, created the hashtag #fergusonsyllabus so that educators could have a platform to discuss the national crisis in Ferguson, Missouri sparked by the police killing of Michael Brown in August, 2014.
