A 5-Week Online Seminar and Virtual Classroom via Zoom from 8-9:30 EDT (5-6:30 PDT) on September 15, 22, 29, October 6 and 13.
“Until you can recognize you are living a racialized life and you’re having racialized experiences every moment of every day, you can’t actually engage people of other races around the idea of justice.” — Whitney Dow, The Whiteness Project
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE WHITE IN A RACIST WORLD?
We will examine the social construction of race and Whiteness, the historical origins of white supremacy and whiteness as an identity, and how to develop a solidarity-based White identity.
