Building White Racial Literacy
Tuesday, February 27, 7–8:30 p.m. PST
This is a Virtual Event, Please RSVP
In the summer of 2020, there was a racial reckoning in the United States and beyond that radically changed the conversation on race for many White people. Concepts such as structural racism, anti-Blackness, and white supremacy emerged in the mainstream and raised the level of literacy White people need in the current context. This talk will review those concepts, provide a reflection exercise to surface white socialization, and describe common organizational dynamics that protect and maintain racism. Dr. DiAngelo will provide the skills and perspectives needed for White people to build their racial literacy and develop more equitable racial norms and practices.
Please join us in reading DiAngelo's book, Nice Racism in preparation for her talk.
