For academic year 2019- 2020 we will use the acclaimed documentary series America To Me to explore the challenges and personal obstacles confronting our own students as they navigate their academic careers.

In this talk we will view clips from the series, and engage in dialogue to explore issues of bias and privilege. How does race play out in the choices that students make and how they are defined? What is the impact of racial predictability of student achievement on academic success? Discipline? Socio-emotional health?

Being Anti-Racist: Workshop 1
What are the characteristics and antidotes of white supremacist culture?

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Three Parkway Building, Room 742 & Via Live Webcast

Event Description:

racism to: (a) ameliorate cultural differences that overtly and covertly assign value and normality to white people and whiteness; (b) produce the inequitable practice and social status; (c) and reinforce undignified treatment of People and Communities of Color.Workshop 1 of this Anti-racism series will focus on cultural racism of white supremacy. In particular, participants will begin to learn about the foundations and characteristics of white supremacist culture and examine the antidotes reflected in inclusive culture. One of the purposes of naming characteristics of white supremacy culture and recognizing it's fundamental role in American culture is to understand how organizations, which use these characteristics as their norms and standards, make it difficult if not impossible, to open the door to other cultural norms and standards. As a result, black and brown-raced individuals are only invited into the white world, which still symbolizes power and privilege, as long as they quietly acclimate and adjust to whiteness and its structures. Being able to name both the behavioral manifestations and cultural structures of white supremacy will help us deconstruct
