Becoming a White Antiracist: Virtual Talk with Dr. Ismaël Traoré

July 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Developing an antiracism perspective and practice is not an ordinary or definite outcome of living in a multicultural and multiracial society. It is an intentional and proactive process, which develops in fits and starts, and requires steadfast commitment. In this virtual talk, Dr. Traoré will discuss the common stages involved in developing a white identity, and the process, challenges, and breakthroughs in learning to be a white antiracist.

The focus of this event is not on racialized people’s experience with racism, but on ‘whiteness’. While some participants may find this approach unlike conventional views and even challenging, attendees are asked to keep an open mind and help create an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity, exploration, mutual respect, and self-reflection.

This event is suitable for people who already accept the following truths:
a) racism exits
b) it manifests in different ways
c) its existence is independent of hate
d) we live in a racialized society, and
e) we all are shaped and impacted by it in different ways
