Tune into this month’s book club, in which we will be discussing the concept, history, and construct of whiteness, different views of racism and unconscious bias, and their impact on how we interact with each other. As a group, we’ll discuss some of the narratives in the video, our response to the podcast, and our awareness and comfort level in talking about race and racism. We will reflect on our personal experiences in living in primarily white environments, expectations of people of color “acting white”, and the ways in which we can move past just talking.
Estimated Preparation time: Less than 1 hour
This will be a casual discussion open to all and no registration is needed; just join via the Zoom Link provided. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
