College Board releases framework of new AP African American Studies course denounced by DeSantis

The College Board released Wednesday the official framework of a new Advanced Placement course on African American Studies that Gov. Ron DeSantis earlier denounced for imposing a “political agenda.”

In recent months, the multidisciplinary course has been praised by academics and historians, all while becoming a target for lawmakers aiming to restrict how topics like racism and history are being taught in public schools.
