Professors at Framingham State University (FSU) have changed their lesson plans this week “to relate to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.”

Assistant professor of sociology, Xavier Guadalupe-Diaz, with the help of three of his colleagues, organized a Black Lives Matter (BLM) teach-in at FSU. While teach-ins are not uncommon at universities, typically these activities are held outside of regular classroom hours allowing students the option to attend. Instead of holding a traditional teach-in, professors decided to replace their normal lectures with BLM-themed discussions since campus activists are already “stretched thin.”
