This lecture is Sunday, June 20, 2021.
Remember last June when everyone was tired of racism and wanted gone. Is it gone? Did we fix it? Are we racism free? No… And all those black squares and tagging every single black person you ever heard of on social media was, in fact, not the solution — AND part of the problem. This Part 2 of “White Urgency Is Violence” is an opportunity for us to reflect on what we’ve learned in the past year about our collective activism, our relationship with liberation and our ability to imagine freedom for all people outside of white people’s discomfort.
This lecture, “White Urgency Is Violence” will delve deep into the harmful nature of white privilege – especially as it pertains to so-called allies. We will discuss:- White Supremacy- White Shame As A Distraction- I Want It Fixed Now (or I’m going back to my regular life of privilege)- And very specific ways to incorporate anti-racism work into your every day life.*For POC attending: This workshop will give some language on how to acknowledge and address this “urgency” when it shows up.
