Seeing the Racial Water
What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless yet is deeply divided by race?
Dr. DiAngelo will describe the way race shapes the lives of white people, explain what makes racism so hard for white people to see, and identify common white racial patterns that prevent us from moving towards greater racial equity. Weaving information, analysis, stories, images, and familiar examples, she provides the framework needed to develop white racial literacy. Although the focus is on white racial identity development, people of color may also find the analysis valuable as it is one that is rarely affirmed or provided in mainstream society. This session will:
1. Provide a shared framework of understanding
2. Build skills in bridging racial divides
3. Identify resources for supporting the work of racial justice
