We all know that racial identity is one of the most complex and continuously evolving facets of human existence, and that it has shaped much of the history of our country and our community. What is less well known is that Whiteness has an origin story. This half day workshop will explore the history of why white identity was intentionally created, how it has functioned to legitimize oppression, and what people of all racial identities can do to challenge the false ideal of whiteness in our culture. Participants will be asked to reflect on how whiteness plays a role in their lives through storytelling and dialogue. There will also be space for race-based caucusing. This event is an opportunity for connection, learning, healing, growth, and conversation.
